Further studies and investigations conducted by “Tiger Eye PI” has revealed that the phenomenon of child begging is more than just children asking for money on the streets.
“It was observed that children were trafficked by adults and used as business. Children are denied of their right to education, good health, nutrition, protection and choices and do dangerous work for the benefit of the traffickers, who buy and sell them across borders with impunity,” a press statement on the project said.
The statement also added that, “This observation culminated in the ten-minute film “Chained by Begging” with an original score by Stonebwoy to be shown on all major TV networks across the country in the month of August.”
