According to data from UNICEF (United Nations Children's Fund), 150 million girls and 73 million boys under the age of 18 are victims of sexual exploitation in the world, and more than 250 thousand children and adolescents are victims of sexual exploitation in Brazil.
The UN (United Nations) estimates that trafficking in human beings for sexual exploitation raises about 9 billion dollars worldwide, and only loses profitability to the illegal drug and arms market.
How we act
Faced with this terrible reality, the MCM, in partnership with the churches, has been working for more than 15 years in the fight against child sexual exploitation, through:
Host Houses - Offers housing, food, medical and dental assistance and education to the children at risk. All this in an environment of love, dignity and restoration of self-esteem.
Scholarship - Allows the child to study and continue living with his family, but without the risk of being trafficked. The WM assumes the costs of school fees, material and uniform.
Prevention Program - Informs communities, through lectures, about trafficking and how traffickers operate.
Professionalization - Offers children and adolescents courses in the areas of: computing, cutting and sewing, costume jewelry and handicrafts.
Apple of God’s Eyes School in Nepal - Provides students with quality education, as well as empowering them to act in society, with critical sense, initiative, creativity and social responsibility.
