Fiji authorities are attempting to rehabilitate a number of children under the age of 15 who were found working in the sex industry.

They have been taken into care and are being sent back to school to ensure they get an education to try to ensure they have better employment prospects.

Fiji's Minister for Labour, Jone Usumate says there is also a special program underway to ensure the safety of children who are working in industry to ensure the work does not have a negative impact on their education and health.
