HAART Kenya is receiving a support from Polish Aid Small Grants Program 2021

Title of project:  Creation of a sustainable environment for rehabilitation women and children – victims of human trafficking through green energy and economic empowerment

Duration: 6 months

This project focuses on creation of a sustainable environment for rehabilitation of women and children – victims of human trafficking through installation of the green energy: solar panels

This project fits the following Sustainable Development Goals:

Goal 8: Decent work and economic growth

Goal 10: Reduced inequalities

Goal 13: Climate action

Financial support received from the Polish Aid: 16 000 Euros

Total cost: 22 000 Euros

The project strengthens assistance to victims of human trafficking identified by HAART Kenya by providing holistic services through the shelter dedicated to victims of trafficking who are young girls between the ages of 6-18 years old and provide economic empowerment to survivors of human trafficking. Victims of Human Trafficking are among the most marginalized and disadvantaged groups in Kenya as the experience of exploitation has a negative effect on their physical and psychological wellbeing. The effects of trauma can last for months if not years and will require specialized therapy (shelter). After victims are rehabilitated they need support such as economic empowerment that can empower the victims and make them capable of independent existence. 

Installation of solar power

One of the key components of protection is shelter that is designated to host women and children – victims of human trafficking. Installing the solar power reduces the cost of running this facility and ultimately make the shelter more sustainable.
