End sexual exploitation of children


CSEC campaign image 2 final

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 Walk Free 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.
