Unique and particularly concerning, is the migration of women and girls aged between 1O and 35 years to become Kayayei, or head porters - young women and girls who earn money by carrying loads on their heads in lorry parks and markets.
Reasons for internal migration vary, but economic incentives are key. The majority of migration is in order to find work. Other motives include education and marriage, although women are generally more likely than men to migrate for marriage.
