What happens to orphans in Ukraine when they age out of the orphanage? Every year an estimated 15,000 children will age out of the system and be evicted from orphanages all over Ukraine. 106,000 children currently live in more than 750 state institutions. 60% of the girls will enter into prostitution. 70% of the boys will turn to crime to survive. 10% of these children will commit suicide. Another 800,000+ children are refugees from the war zone. All of these children are at high-risk and with limited opportunities, they become targets of human trafficking.
