Here are a couple quotes to chew over:
Unemployment in Zimbabwe is thought to top 90% and many cannot afford to pay for food, medical care or school fees.
The deputy head teacher of a large school with 1,500 pupils east of Victoria Falls told the BBC that hundreds of her female students are now selling their bodies for whatever they can get.
“It could be books, it could be biscuits, chips, some even just to be given a hug.”
There is also evidence that many girls are being targeted by child traffickers, Save the Children’s country director Rachel Pounds says.
They are thought to have plans to send young Zimbabwean girls to South Africa to work as prostitutes during next year’s football World Cup finals.
