New form of child trafficking in Tanzania - News |theeastafrican.co.ke
Orphans in secondary schools are now in danger of being exploited by child traffickers who lure them out of school with promises of training them in Europe, but instead exploit them for money, it has been revealed.
The incidence of internal trafficking is higher than that of transnational trafficking, and is usually facilitated by family members’, friends’, and intermediaries’ offers of assistance with education or finding lucrative employment in urban areas.
It further states that the use of young girls for forced domestic service continues to be Tanzania’s largest human trafficking problem. “Girls from rural areas are taken to urban centres and Zanzibar for domestic service,” the report says.
