Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
At Gasi Bay, Kenya, poverty exacerbated by drought is leaving foreign fishermen and local motorcycle transport drivers as the richest men around, able to pay young girls in food or in-kind to have sex with them. Thousands of under-age children are said to be in this trade, mostly with the knowledge of their parents, to feed their families. Local workers with organizations are trying to educate girls and their families about mitigating the risks of sex work for children and finding other sources of income.  (see notes)
