Challenge

More than 20,000 victims are trafficked through Kenya annually from neighboring countries including Ethiopia, Somalia and South Sudan. Worryingly, HAART Kenya is the only organisation in the country which provides a shelter for specifically young girls who have suffered severe trauma as a result of being trafficked. Kenya is a source, transit and destination for victims of human trafficking and HAART day and night to prevent trafficking of young girls.

Solution

The project will focus on giving trauma informed care to victims of trafficking currently residing at the shelter. Most victims of trafficking go through multiple forms of abuse and as a result suffer both physical and mental trauma. Some of the services offered at the shelter includes: basic needs, medical assistance, psycho-social support, legal aid, education, family tracing and economic empowerment for the families.

Long-Term Impact

The girls will be provided with shelter for 3 months at our facility. The three months will allow the girls to go through the rehabilitation process that is centered on the specific needs of each girl that we receive. Currently the shelter can house up to 25 girls at a time. During reintegration, we work both with the family and duty bearers within the community to ensure safety when we take the girls back to the community.
