End sexual exploitation of children in Kenya - FreedomUnited.org
Campaign Update:

November 22, 2019: We’re thrilled that Kenya has begun the ratification process of the Optional Protocol to the CRC on the Sale of Children, Child Prostitution and Child Pornography. Ratifying will be an important step toward addressing child sexual exploitation in the country.

End sexual exploitation of children in Kenya

The last place you should expect to find a child is in a brothel; yet for 17-year-old Phoebe from Kenya, this is her life.1

Phoebe comes from a poor family. When she dropped out of school, she went in search of a better life – instead she has been forced to have group sex with tourists for no money.2

Reports indicate that more than 50,000 children are involved in different forms of commercial sexual exploitation.3 It is most common along the Kenyan Coast where the majority of tourism activities take place – in fact sex offenders travel to Kenya for this very reason: to prey on these vulnerable victims.4

No child should be forced into the commercial sex industry for their survival. We must ensure that these predators keep their hands off Kenya’s children.

Join us and Child Aid Organization Kenya in calling on the Kenyan government to declare zero tolerance of commercial sexual exploitation of children, backed by regular monitoring and law enforcement.

“Forced to have sex” is not a thing. It does not exist. She was gangraped. All of these children are victims of rape and rape trafficking. One of the reason why rape culture is not taken seriously is because the media and organizations are too scared to call rape what it is every time. You cannot force sex. You cannot force consent. It is rape.


they R not slaves at any age, can’t belonong to smone, they were borned free as everyone (-thing, mean animal which R still have no rights cause IT is just a property) on our planet

We need to know that another person’s body is his body, it’s not a business or a simple thing!!
We all have a soul, a history that is under our command.


for these people Thus saith Jehovah God Thessalonians 1:9 These same ones will suffer the judicial punishment of the eternal destruction, + being eliminated from before the Lord and of its glorious force


Freaky!!! I suggest that anyone who gets caught abusing a child to be put to jail and not be able to leave the country!!!

Ask the Kenyan government to protect children from commercial sexual exploitation

Help us reach 150,000 actions

Dear Hon. Phyllis Kandie, Cabinet Secretary – Ministry of East African Community, Labour and Social Protection,

The heinous crime of commercial sexual exploitation of children is especially prevalent in large areas of the Kenyan tourism industry. The estimated numbers are too high and time has come for action.

Please demonstrate the Kenyan government’s zero tolerance for commercial sexual exploitation of children by:

• Enforcing the Code of Conduct for the Protection of Children Against the Commercial Sexual Exploitation in Travel and Tourism

• Directing all tour/taxi operators, small hotels, beach companies and private villa owners to sign a the Code of Conduct declaring that they will not carry or host unaccompanied children without proper identification.

• Facilitating inter-ministerial collaboration with relevant security agencies, especially the police, to ensure regular monitoring and law enforcement. This should be reflected in increased arrests and prosecution of offenders to serve as a deterrent to others.

Freedom United will protect your privacy while updating you on campaigns, news and stories about modern slavery.
