Up to 30,000 girls between the ages of 12 and 14 are being lured into the industry with promises of riches and trips abroad after the sexual activity is done.
However nothing is actually given to them afterwards and these girls then fall into the trap of prostitution from which they can’t escape afterwards.
They have engaged themselves in prostitution not out of necessity but in hope that it will bring them a better life for their family and themselves.
Since prostitution is such a profitable activity many families in Kenya allow their children to get into the prostitution industry at a very young age in order to get money.
In Kenya, a sexual encounter with a girl under the age of sixteen can cost twenty Euros, but can go up to as high as sixty Euros.
A study by UNICEF found that there is a high level of acceptance of prostitution and commercial sexual abuse not only by tourists, but by the people of Kenya including parents of the girls that are involved in these acts.
They lack financial support from their husbands or extended family, they endure economic pressures and because of their instability they have no choice but to view prostitution as an option for themselves.
