Kwale and Kilifi counties are hotspots for sexual exploitation of children in travel and tourism. Systemic poverty and scarce income opportunities are key drivers, but also the deep rooted societal norms.
Van Marwijk Advies assisted Terre des Hommes with writing BUILDING A FUTURE: a project to end sex trafficking in hotspots in Kenya. Young victims of sexual exploitation are supported to return to school and and older victims are trained for finding a job. Communities and schools will be mobilized to prevent children-at-risk from trafficking. This $728,801 project will be fully funded by the US Global Fund to End Modern Slavery (GFEMS)
