Sponsors with ties to both Africa and Europe lure African teenage girls out of the continent. These European men promise jobs as maids or au pairs, opportunities for higher education and have even given loans to pay for their trip into what is perceived to be a chance to make something of their lives. When they arrive, the girls are forced into sex slavery or trafficking to an abundance of white men and military personnel. The perpetrators take the girls’ passports and other official documents. The girls are unable to seek help from authorities because they fear being deported.
