This report is about Somali children whose parents are faced with desperate choices. It looks at how that despair has been turned into a lucrative and exploitative international child-smuggling business, which delivers the agonies of a failed state to the doorstep of the West. Content includes personal accounts, a photo gallery, chapters on unaccompanied small children, the smugglers’ network, looking after separated children, and the dream of education. There is also a summary of observations.
