The story of a Dark Village

Some villages run on agriculture, others on craftwork. But this village survives and thrives on the sex work of its women.  Imagine an entire village running on prostitution with no future for its children. There are 1600 women who sell sex to 3000 men everyday. In the picture are 300 children who call this home.

Check out this video, courtesy of The Guardian, to see a dark, stark life without too many options. Thankfully, there are NGOs which are trying to make a difference. But can things really change when society thinks its the birthright of men to have ‘fun’ and that ‘boys will be boys’?
