Dear MEL Topic Readers,

One every eight minutes: India’s missing children

It is estimated that over one child per minute, or 180 children per day, disappears from their families in India. Some children are sold by their own family and others are tricked to get a job or live a better life. Once trafficked, they are enslaved to work with little or no wage, beg on the street, or exploited as sex workers.

Poverty is the first to blame for child trafficking. Also, lack of good education and weakness of law enforcement causes such inhumane acts by the traffickers and abusers of children. Another cultural problem is that even if an enslaved child gets a chance to return home, he or she is often ashamed in their community.

Watch the video to learn how such a malicious act is still practiced widely and daily in India.
