If a girl runs away if she is caught she will be beaten, raped, starved and a lot more.

If a child grows up in a home with “...poor parental management, poor supervision, [and] inconsistent discipline, they are at a greater chance of being involved in illegal activities.
For example “Child labor is harmful to a child’s physical, mental, and social development” (“About”). Children are inexperienced workers, using tools and machines that are not made for them. This is a serious problem where fatal injuries can occur.

The economy does not supply adequate learning facilities or a stable environment for expecting women, single mothers, or abandoned children and pushes them to the sex industry in order to earn money and protection. Younger woman tend to travel abroad in the sex industry in the hopes of a better life in a different country. When the victims are asked why they are reluctant to leave the sex industry they answer with “the wish to survive”, “to be independent from their families”, or the need “to help the family” (41). With many children being born into poverty everyday, prostitution is viewed more as a positive lifestyle for all rather than something detrimental to their lives, it becomes more widely accepted.

The victims of the acts may have also been subjected to pornography of a violent nature which causes them to relapse in their
