One in four internally displaced persons surveyed in Kenya has been a victim or witness of human trafficking, the majority lured to the Middle East but then forced to do menial work or sexually exploited, an anti-trafficking charity said on Tuesday. “As traffickers tend to look for people who are desperate and with an uncertain future, they often target IDP communities,” HAART, a Kenyan charity that gives trafficking victims psychological and economic support, said in a study. Traffickers posed as job agents in 88 per cent of cases, researchers found, and two-thirds of their victims were women.
The objective of the “One UN” is to improve the impact, coherence, efficiency, effectiveness and positioning of the UN system in Kenya to enable it better assist the country to meet the MDGs and Vision 2030. This will be achieved through One Programme, One Budgetary Framework, One Office, One Leader and Communicating as One.
