In the media: fighting sexual exploitation at the Kenyan coast

April 2nd, 2019

Poverty remains the major push factor for children to engage in child sexual exploitation at the Kenyan coast. In Kwale County, situated on the South Coast, 74% of the population is living below the poverty line. Children between 10 and 18 years old are most affected, according to experts from the recently started Terre des Hommes Netherlands’ project tackling Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC) at the Coast, which was highlighted on Citizen TV. Already 16 children have been identified and supported through the project, to withdraw and/or prevent them from engaging in CSEC.
