Child Prostitution in Kenya

in Transnational Crime

According to the NGO End Child Prostitution in Kenya, in 2009 there were up to 50,000 children involved in the sex trade. Most of the customers of child prostitution were Kenyan nationals, as well as tourists from Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States.

In 2012, child advocates reported that men were paying around $25 (2,000 Kenyan Shillings) to have sex with girls as young as 12.
