HAART (Awareness Against Human Trafficking) is a Non-governmental Organization in Kenya dedicated to fighting human trafficking in Eastern Africa. The workshop was held at HAART Offices in Our Lady of Peace, Catholic Church Office Block. The workshop was organized by HAART Kenya to bring together DKA partner organizations and train them on Human Trafficking in a bid to increase awareness, to launch a combating child trafficking manual for teachers and trainers that would act as an aid tool to sensitize students and children on their basic rights, raise awareness among children on child trafficking and ensure that children are equipped with information that will enable them to protect themselves against child trafficking. The workshop brought together individuals from different organizations that work with children for possible networking; the team included lawyers, counselors, social workers and child care organizations. Facilitators were the staff and team at HAART Kenya. The training was an important event that would equip the staff with knowledge and information regarding children’s rights and child protection issues as well as child trafficking. The information learnt would in turn be passed on to teachers and students in Mercy Schools.
