Sexual exploitation of children and adolescents associated with travel and tourism
It consists in the offer and / or sexual use of children by people traveling from one country to another, or between cities in the same country.

In general, the sexual gamblers are arranged informally between friends or colleagues, pedophiles or not, and in some cases with the participation of travel agents.
Early marriages or servile marriage
It consists of the covert "sale" of girls, in the form of legal marriages, to be subjected to sexual and domestic servitude; the husband - usually an adult much older than the girl and with a superior economic position - pays a sum of money or a "contribution" to the family for the girl and then subjects her to sexual intercourse.
Sometimes it involves moving the child to another city or country.
The family perceives the husband as a "benefactor"
Use of children in armed groups (illegal)
Many children involved in armed conflicts suffer the trauma of war, not only as witnesses to the murders of their family members, but they are also abducted, forcibly recruited and suffer sexual abuse and exploitation.
These children are forced to have sexual relations with adults in military units and forced to carry out intelligence activities through sexual exchanges with opposing groups; in other cases, boys and girls are transferred by pimps to camps where they remain for days or weeks subjected to multiple and successive violations; other times, the IAG controls areas of prostitution where they are taxed to transit or stay in some areas or subject them to harassment and sexual abuse
