    Where are the other unsers ?

    Are they hidden behind their screen ?

    Kotyas come on talk about child situation IN Lanka.

    Since CFA LTTE stopped child recruitment, but it seems that child prostitution in the South still work...

    If i could , i will save all those innocants children, but i have no power to do.

    It`s Yaks parents who have to save their child...

    Colombo became a main attraction for white and black grandfathers, why ?

    I remember a member named Special Forces who spoke more about Boy intimacy workers. i wish he could read this and give us a clue.

    In the lines of a solution, I wouls recommend on Child friendly people and hence only WOMEN, MARRIED WOMEN to be the counsels at these centres. Especially from the Receptionist to the last person providing all services to these victims.

    Showing a Woman`s Face on this instiution remove the element of Fear and Shyness to talk to the caring kind, like a mother.

    Even a fierce man falls on a woman`s lap!!!

    Fairplay

    Is everyone here completely unaware of the high number of Child intimacy workers and intimacy abuse that happens in Sri Lanka? Especially out of the North and East region?!

    Child intimacy workers in Sri Lanka, especially in the Southern regions was at one point one of the highest in Asia! Is anyone not aware of Sri Lanka`s famous Beach Boys?! This problem was ignored for decades until an explosion of all the scandals appeared in the mid to late 1990s following increasing pressures from Welfare organisations demanding the govt to take action and to increase the legal age for intimacyual consent from 12 to 16! Yes..a shocker but true!

    Even to this day, appearance of child intimacy abuse articles in our newspapers and magazines are a common occurance. The state has certainly done alot to address this issue, but one also needs to understand that the only way we can keep our children from being exploited in the streets is economic prosperity.

    Forget child intimacy workers, but the incidence of child intimacy abuse, especially within the family is alarmingly high! Incest and other forms of intimacyual abuse of children is high in Sri Lankan villages, especially where the mother`s leave their children to work in foreign lands and the father`s decide to stay home jobless. Incidents being reported to the National Child Protection Authority (the first of its kind in Asia) have seen considerable increases since its launch in the late 1990s, although the figures are still the tip of the ice berg.
