Authors:  NURUL NOMEN.
  Abstract:  Trafficking in Bangladesh is believed to be extensive both within the country and to India, Pakistan and the Middle East. Many girls are trafficked into sexual exploitation or bonded servitude. Many boys have also been trafficked to the Middle East to become camel racing jockeys. Children involved in camel racing (CICR) are often injured in the course of their work, are vulnerable to abuse from their employers and there are reports of employers deliberately keeping the children''''s weights low by not feeding them enough (UNICEF Bangladesh, Innovation: Child Protection). Many children are taken with their parents'''' consent, having been duped by stories of well-paid jobs or marriages. Reintegration into mainstream society is a huge issue for trafficked children. For children involved in camel racing, many can no longer remember their own language. They become strangers in their own land.
