It is reported that 30% of the children in Guatemala are being raped by their own father. One of the reason for the above situation is girls being not aware of sex education. This tends to be a barrier in prevention of this dilemma. 5100 girls under the age of 14 have become mothers within the last year. Guatemala is a country where more “child mothers” can be found.  Men use young pre-teen girls as an asset to their sexual pleasure.

Guatemala has one of the world's highest teen pregnancy rates as more than 5,100 girls under 14 had babies in 2014. Rape and sexual abuse is common with 30 per cent of babies born to teenagers fathered by the girls' own fathers. Many pregnant girls don't understand sex and often crime not recognized because men see girls as their property. Despite laws introduced to curb teen rape, just eight people were convicted of sex crime following births in 2012.
