Building a Future (BAF)

The Building a Future (BAF) Project was a 21-month initiative funded by the U.S. Department of State’s Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons, through the Global Fund to End Modern Slavery (GFEMS). Implemented by Terre des Hommes Netherlands and Kesho Kenya, the project aims to reduce sex trafficking or re-trafficking of children in Kwale and Kilifi Counties. Its impact includes envisioning a reduction in the prevalence of trafficking and sexual exploitation among children in the targeted areas. The project focuses on ensuring survivors and children at risk remain in school, empowering communities to monitor and report trafficking cases, improving income for vulnerable families, enhancing employability skills for survivors, and promoting positive social norms that discourage child sex trafficking.
