Project Name: Buidling a Future: Improving access to inclusive quality education and sustainable household livelihoods for child victims and those at risk of sex trafficking in Kwale and Kilifi counties.
Terre des Hommes Netherlands (TdH-NL) is an international NGO committed to stopping child exploitation. In East Africa, Terre des Hommes Netherlands works in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Ethiopia. We support child victims of exploitation with education, psychosocial support, legal assistance, shelter, job opportunities and medical care; while at the same time targeting highly vulnerable children, who are at risk of being exploited, in our prevention activities. We launch public and media campaigns to create awareness on our focus issues and carry out local research into the extent and nature of abuse and exploitation of children.
TdH-NL in East Africa works within four child protection themes: the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC), the Worst Forms of Child Labour (WFCL), Child Trafficking and Unsafe Migration (CTM), and Child Abuse (CA) specifically focusing on Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights. Through collaboration with local civil society organisations (CSOs), TdH-NL implements development, humanitarian/relief and advocacy interventions in various parts of Kenya, supported by own TdH-NL funding and from various institutional donors and foundations.
Our Vision: Terre des Hommes Netherlands works towards a world where all children have a decent life and can grow up to be independent adults. A world in which children are no longer exploited. We will continue our work until this is accomplished.
Our Mission: Terre des Hommes Netherlands prevents child exploitation, removes children from exploitative situations and ensures these children can develop themselves in a safe environment.
About Building a Future project
Terre des Hommes Netherlands in partnership with Kesho Kenya is implementing a 21 months intervention with funding from the Global Fund to End Modern Slavery (GFEMS) with the support of the U.S. Department of State’s Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons. The project “Building A Future” aims to reduce prevalence of child sex trafficking in Kilifi and Kwale counties.
Specifically, it focuses on implementing community-based prevention methods; supporting access to quality formal education for young survivors; vocational skills training, apprenticeships and job skilling for older adult survivors; and, improvement of household livelihoods for the most vulnerable child sex trafficking survivors. Targeting five known child sex trafficking/exploitation hotspot locations in coastal Kenya: Lunga Lunga (in Lunga Lunga Sub County), Ukunda (in Msambweni Sub County), Watamu in (Kilifi South Sub County), Malindi (in Malindi Sub County) and Mtwapa (in Kilifi North Sub County), the project works to address both the supply of vulnerable individuals and the enabling environment that allows trafficking to persist.
On the supply side, the project aims to reduce the vulnerability of survivors and vulnerable children to re-exploitation. For young survivors, the project will reintegrate participants into formal education with additional support services such as provision of school supplies, access to social protection programs, and training for teachers on how best to identify and report sex trafficking and support survivors. For older children survivors, the project will focus on vocational skills training and facilitate job placement with partner companies. This will include enrolment in vocational training or apprenticeship programs, market-based job placement and continued training opportunities, and coaching and mentoring for survivors. The expected outcome will be the acquisition of relevant skills leading to sustainable employment and livelihoods for older survivors.
On the enabling environment side, the project aims to build the capacity of the local community to develop positive social norms which discourage CSEC. It also seeks to empower schools to play an active role in monitoring, identifying and reporting cases of child sex trafficking to the established referral pathways.
