According to the last estimates, nearly half of Togo’s population is below 18 years of age.

Most Togolese trafficking victims are children brought from rural areas to Lomé, where they are subjected to forced labour or exploited in prostitution. To a lesser extent, Togo is also a destination country for girls from Ghana which are trafficked in the country for sexual purposes.

Although the legal age of marriage in Togo is 18 for girls and 20 for boys, the child marriage prevalence rate is 22%.
