Report: Jobless Ghanaian girls trafficked into s*x trade in India( Video)


Young people form the largest part of Africa’s slightly over a billion people. This population can be viewed as a demographic dividend to the continent.

However, African youth face one of the greatest challenges of all time; unemployment.

In Ghana, girls seeking a better life in other parts of the world, face a long, perilous, often fatal journey across various routes including the Mediterranean.

But when they do arrive, they confront yet another threatening prospect; conscription into s*x slavery.

In the following report titled, Youth in Peril, GHone News’ multiple award-winning journalist, Ridwan Karim Dini-Osman, explores how Ghana’s growing youth joblessness is fueling a s*x trafficking syndicate in the Indian capital of New Delhi.
