Number of Girls Trafficked into Kenya Each Week

The Refugees Consortium of Kenya reported that at least 50 girls between the age of 10 to 15 are sold in the major cities of Kenya every week.

The human traffickers generate an estimated $40 Million a year from the selling of young girls.

The International Organization of Migration says that up to 20,000 people from Somalia and Ethiopia are smuggled into Kenya each year and their way to South Africa.
