Girls in the favelas are very vulnerable. They are forced to prostitute themselves to earn an income at a very young age. This leads to severely traumatized children being a mother again at a young age.
Alexia (17 years old) “I’m so glad I got a chance escape prostitution through education”.
Ramona (17 years old) “If there is no money for food, then I need to earn money by prostitution on the street. Even though I'm heavily pregnant. I take care of my child and my brother after my mother was killed by a drug gang.”
Diná (21 years old) “It took a long time before I got back my daughter after years of crack addiction and prostitution.”
