Hungry families sell their girls for food

According to World Vision, parents in Niger are so hungry they are selling their daughters for food. Men will buy girls as wives for a few goats or livestock. Although the parents did not like to do it, they said they had no alternative. I wonder whether they considered selling the boys or fathers? I wonder how well the girls do.
