아프리카 서부지역 국가들, 인신매매 근절을 위해 함께 하다

This is 11-year-old Augustin Dognon and his brothers. They live in the dirt poor village of Za Hla in central Benin. All three are victims of child trafficking, sent off to crush stone at faraway quarries in northern Nigeria. SOUNDBITE (French) Augustine Dognon, 11: “They told us we were going to work with chickens and collect eggs. But when they arrived in Nigeria, we had to work like adults breaking stone. It was terrible work very hard.” The boys' father, Roger, has about 20 children and four wives. He says he couldn't cope and felt forced to sell his boys' labor to a trafficker: SOUNDBITE (French) Roger Dognon: “It's what done around here. We are very poor. I was promised good money for the boys for one year and I got about $60 as a down payment.” Eventually, a countryman reported their case to the police and they were brought home. SOUNDBITE (English) Dr. Alassane Biga, UNICEF child protection officer: “You have your child and then you take it to give to someone to be exploited and you, you are sitting to just get money. For what? It has to be punished.” At Augustin's school all these 14 boys were trafficked to neighboring Nigeria. A tradition of placing children with relatives in cities has become perverted in the quest for a better life. Here they learn the story of Anna another victim of trafficking. These boys suffered terrible abuse and their friend died working on the quarries. In a bid to put the brakes to this harmful practice, UNICEF and partners have brought the magic of mobile cinema to children who've never seen the real thing. They watch the film of Anna and Bazil. It's a story they know all too well. The children themselves tell about their experiences. Each year unknown thousands of children are trafficked across porous borders throughout West and Central Africa. But now legal loopholes are being closed and governments are coming together to stop more children being robbed of their childhood. This is Sarah Crowe for UNICEF television in Benin. Unite for Children. *** Asset Name : UNICEF: West African nations join forces to end child trafficking Asset Duration: 02 min 35 secs Shoot City: Za Hla village Shoot Country: Benin Shoot Date: Jul 6 2006
