Who we are

Trace Kenya is a national Counter Trafficking in Persons NGO based in Mtwapa, in the outskirts of Mombasa, Kilifi County, coast region, Kenya. Trace Kenya was established in 2006. It serves, for now the counties of Tana River, Kilifi, Mombasa, Kwale and Taita Taveta; working with:

  1. Children – unaccompanied children, street connected children, children in unsafe migration, refugee children, internally displaced children, children at risk of commercial sexual exploitation and facing worst forms of child labour. Trace Kenya seeks to rescue, rehabilitate and reintegrate these children through family reunions and community settlement.
  2. Youth – at risk of forced labor and sexual exploitation, unsafe migrants, youth at risk of modern day slavery, forced labour and trafficking for exploitative purposes.
  3. Women and persons with disabilities - who are most vulnerable populations facing human trafficking in Kenya for commercial sexual exploitation, labour exploitation and street begging and other forms of human exploitation.



A world in which child exploitation; human trafficking; and modern day slavery is eliminated and human dignity restored.



Trace Kenya works with individuals, communities, partners, institutions and organizations to counter the trafficking of persons in Kenya and thus fight modern day slavery.

Strategic plans 2015 -2018

In the year 2015 - 2018 Strategic Plan, Trace Kenya hopes to increase jurisdiction to Bungoma, Nairobi and Isiolo counties, which have been identified as source areas for many of the children trafficked into the coastal region. This strategic growth is meant to reach source areas for children trafficking in particular, in an effort to stem the alarming number of children trafficked into the coast from these counties. Further future plans entail moving into Busia, Migori, Trans Nzoia and Samburu counties, and finally spreading nationally.
