Zimbabwe girls in South Africa

from the AP, who is trying to stop bloggers from quoting from their stories.

summary: the teenagers are economic refugees, unable to support themselves or be supported by family in Zimbabwe.

they often find work as maids or babysitters in exchange for a tiny salary with room and board, but some end up as "wives" or sexually exploited.
