The Yarumal Missionaries approached CHTEA for awareness materials to be deployed in their remote locations of the Samburu County in Kenya. Using generic teaching aid materials availed to them, the team of priests and lay Christians gathered indigenous communities together to educate them about human trafficking. Even though Samburu County might not have much to share about human trafficking, a few days after commencing the awareness campaign, Fr Jairo, the lead facilitator, based in Nairobi was able to pick a case of smuggled Ethiopians, through Samburu and whose case was brought to light after police interception. This case was a clear eye opener to this frontline Priest who appreciated that Samburu County could still be used by traffickers as a transit destination.
