We are always honoured to write to you and keep you in the loop of how we are doing here at HAART Kenya. Our hearts are full of gratitude due to your continued support by playing a sufficiently great role in the course to eradicate human trafficking.
As communicated in the last report, HAART temporarily closed down its shelter due to insufficient funding and security concerns. We, therefore, reintegrated most of the girls and referred two (2) girls to partner shelters. We continue to manage the girls’ cases by meeting their pending needs. HAART still has twelve (12) girls as beneficiaries of educational support, eight (8) of them being direct beneficiaries who were living in the HAART shelter before reintegration or referral and four (4) indirect beneficiaries.
We are currently working on building the capacity of one of the schools we partner with so that they can meet the required student-teacher ratio. Additionally, for the reintegrated girls, we are looking to transfer them to public schools near their homes so that the guardians can easily monitor their schooling.
Due to the recent Covid-19 pandemic, schools have been closed indefinitely and therefore the girls are currently in the respective homes where they were re-integrated or referred. Staff are also working from home by conducting phone call follow-ups, online screening, needs assessments, case planning and online therapy for survivors is ongoing. Businesses set up for survivors in the previous months have been adversely affected and thus will require support to get them stable again. Hearings for court cases have also been postponed until further notice.
12 beneficiaries reported to school and were facilitated with school fees.
9 victims were supported with transport to their various schools
