Child Protection in Kenya

Emali is a rapidly growing peri-urban location in Kenya. This means that children are vulnerable to human trafficking and sexual exploitation, issues that communities are currently not equipped to prevent. 

ChildFund will continue to raise awareness of communities, teachers, parents and children to understand the rights of the child and how to protect children. Community paralegal offices will be established so that community members have a place to go for support. Commemorating the Day of the African Child will be another avenue for raising awareness and celebrating children.
