The story is repeated over and over. A child is abused in exchange for food for self or for the family. According to the Violence Against Children Survey conducted in eSwatini, one in three girls experienced sexual violence before the age of 18. Sexual violence against girls was most commonly perpetrated by boys or men from the victim’s neighborhood, at the homestead, in a field or public space or at a neighbor or friend. Long walks for water or resources for the home, isolation after missing school because of house work or coercion to give sex for food result in fewer possibilities even for education, and less hope for a promising future. HIV prevalence among girls is also tied in many instances to sexual abuse.
