-The Brazilian police estimate that there are between 250,000 and 400,00 CHILDREN exploited in domestic prostitution in Brazil.

-These children are most likely found in resorts and tourists areas.

-Paraguay and Chile have both criminalized illegal entry into the country for the purpose of prostitution.

-10% of human trafficking is found in South America

-1.3 Billion US dollars are collected in South America each year

Sadly, with an increasing amount of human trafficking in South America, there is little awareness or statistics. With one or two minor laws being passed in South America, this leaves a gateway for prostitution, slave labor, and any other possible slavery in this country. I believe with so many scattered and forgotten tribes in places like Brazil, it is almost impossible to keep track of who is being taken and exploited.
