The childless generation may seem to be facing its own child slavery education crisis.

But it’s also facing the consequences of its own education.

In the US, one in five children under 18 is childless, according to a study by the Pew Research Center.

In China, it’s more than one in four.

In Britain, it is one in six.

In the Philippines, one of the most affluent nations in the world, one-third of children under the age of 18 are not in school.

In the Philippines alone, some 3 million children are missing from school, according the Philippines Association of Child Care Services (PACES).

The Philippines has been one of Asia’s fastest-growing economies for the past decade.

But the country has a growing problem with child poverty.

According to a report from the Pew Foundation in March 2017, child poverty rates among the Philippines’ youth are increasing at the fastest rate in the region.

The report found that for every 10 Filipino children under 15, there are one child who is in school but unable to go to school because they cannot afford the cost of attendance.

“Children in poverty are the ones who will be the ones that suffer most from poverty,” said Jennifer McBride, senior policy analyst at the Pew Center.

Many of the Philippine children who are not able to go home to school are also in the midst of being trafficked into the sex trade.

“There are many children who were trafficked in the country for child labor.

It’s very important to educate those children because it will prevent the children from going to school and therefore prevent their children from being traffinated,” McBride said.

According to the PACES, the Philippines has seen a steep rise in the number of children being traffammed.

It has seen more than 100,000 children being rescued from sex trafficking and child prostitution since 2015, an increase of more than 30 percent.

“Child trafficking and human trafficking are both crimes, but the Philippines continues to do very little to fight them,” said PacES spokesperson, Patricia Nino.

Some of the child trafficking that takes place in the Philippines is illegal.

The NGO Human Rights Watch says that in 2016, the country saw a significant increase in child trafficking and forced labor, with children being taken from schools and forced to work in the sex industry.

Forced labor in the nation of 7.4 million is illegal under Philippine law.

It is also against the law to buy, sell, or receive any child or children for sexual exploitation.

A recent survey by the PACERS found that Filipino parents of a four-year-old child are more likely to report that their child has been trafficked than their Filipino counterparts.

Nino says it is difficult for children to report crimes committed by their parents to police, because the law does not protect children.

“I think that the government is not taking the problem seriously enough,” she said.

“They want to have a safe country, they want to do it on a more legal basis.”

According the report by the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, children are not protected under the UN Convention Against Torture.

Instead, the United States has been accused of failing to prosecute child trafficking, even though the country was one of only three countries to pass the Convention in 2002.

The report found, “Despite the Convention’s provisions against forced labor and trafficking, the U.S. government has failed to prosecute or bring to justice nearly 20,000 cases of child trafficking or other forms of trafficking for which it has been notified since 2000.”

The PACES is a non-profit organization based in Manila, Philippines.

It helps childless children and their families with child protection issues.

It operates a 24-hour hotline and conducts educational workshops on trafficking and related issues to promote better practices in the protection of children.
