The images within are distressing.
This investigation shares five years worth of media and information gathered through field reporting, undercover work, extensive research and interviews, and collaborative recreation. Stories within are based on real life testimonies and actual incidents, but exact names, geographic locations and identifiable details have been intentionally altered so as to ensure the safety of featured individuals and contributors as agreed.
Some materials may prove distressing with regard to reporting on sexual violence and children. As far as possible, this report has tried to adhere to industry guidelines – including those set out by UNICEF
– as well as certain exceptional circumstances they outline. Where specified, visual media has been digitally altered to these ends. Readers should treat this work as constructed advocacy
based on the author's personal experiences and real-life testimonies, not as impartially vetted journalism.
