Partnership & Networking

Counter-human trafficking requires a concerted effort of many actors and we value partnerships and collaborating with other institutions to eradicate human trafficking. In this effort, CHTEA is a member of the following networks:

  1. i) Religious Against Human Trafficking (RAHT) and by extension a member of Talitha Kum (a Global Catholic network on Counter Human Trafficking based in Rome, Italy)
  2. ii) Stop The Traffic Kenya (STTK – a Civil society network),
    iii) the East Africa Child Rights Network (EACRN),
  1. iv) the East Africa Human Rights Network (EAHRN),
  2. v) Liberty Shared (a global membership digital platform with over 5000 Civil Society Organisations).

CHTEA works very closely with Governments and intergovernmental organizations, including  the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection, the Children’s Department, the Counter Trafficking in Persons’ Secretariat and the Advisory Committee of CTiP, the National Industrial Training Authority, The Kenya Police – the Directorate of Criminal Investigations, the Transnational Organized Crime Unit and the Anti Human Trafficking and Child Protection Unit,  Interpol Regional Bureau, the East African Community (EAC), the Intern-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD) and the African Union (The Office of the Rapporteur on Human and People’s Rights)

A world free from human exploitation and trafficking and prosecution of the perpetrators.

To create a trafficking-free environment through advocacy, lobbying and reintegration, and rehabilitation of human trafficking victims.

CHTEA seeks to redefine counter Trafficking in Persons’ (TIP) strategies through promotion of enhanced coordination, capabilities, skills, exposure, research and documentation; while at the same time seeking to offer holistic solutions to victims’ plight and design an arresting intervention for the perpetrators and/or traffickers. Working collaboratively with Government agencies, CHTEA seeks to advocate, train, advice and prepare policy briefs for sub-regional government policy makers as it may apply appropriately in an effort to create a synergized approach towards Trafficking in Persons and other transnational organized crimes.
