Deadline: 16 November 2015
Terre des Hommes Netherlands (TdH-NL) is inviting non-governmental organisations (NGOs or CSOs) with the required framework to submit full proposals on : Fighting Trafficking & Unsafe Migration of Children in Kenya.
Tackling trafficking and unsafe migration of children is an important theme in TdH-NL’s current strategic plan (2011-2015). As part of its new strategic plan (2016-2020), TdH-NL plans to increase its support to comprehensive projects addressing trafficking and unsafe migration of children in Eastern Africa. Initial focus will be on three year projects (2016-2018).
Funding is only granted to national organisations (non INGOs) fully registered in the country of implementation. Any sub granting partners must also be fully registered.
- Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC): TdH-NL believes that the commercial sexual exploitation of children is a horrific violation of the rights of children and an act that also implies a crime on the part of those who use girls and boys and adolescents in the sex trade.
- Child Trafficking: TdH-NL aims to facilitate linkages at regional, national and County levels for institutions to ensure that regional and national anti-trafficking initiatives are effectively put into practice and that the various higher level initiatives are rooted in practical experience and action.
This RFP specifically aims to address the following outcomes:
- Children at risk of trafficking and unsafe migration and children who are victims of trafficking and unsafe migration claim their rights
- Families and communities protect children from trafficking and unsafe migration
- Government protects children from trafficking and unsafe migration by making and adequately implementing laws and policies
- Law enforcement agencies convict child traffickers
- Civil society organisations protect the rights and best interest of children (specifically children vulnerable to trafficking and unsafe migration)
- Private sector contributes to the wellbeing of children vulnerable to or victims of trafficking and unsafe migration
Types of activities
Strategies to be considered by applicants should be in line with the 5 P’s strategy of TdH-NL. A minimum of 2 of the 5 P’s should be included in the proposed project. Examples of activities include:
- Children vulnerable to child trafficking and unsafe migration receive and attend educational services
- Trafficked children (boys and girls) are intercepted, safeguarded and reintegrated
- Community members with children vulnerable to trafficking and unsafe migration participate in awareness raising activities
- Families of trafficked children participate in income generating activities
- Members of judiciary and police staff are trained on child protection and child-friendly interview techniques
The call seeks to respond to internal child trafficking (within the country from rural into urban areas). Although over the past one and a half years, the trafficking programme has been focusing on the urban informal settlements, indications are that trafficked children end up working in not only the informal settlements but also in lower and middle income areas in Nairobi. Some of the areas include Mandare, Malaba, Busia and Moyale which act as both cross border as well as source areas of child trafficking to Nairobi and Mombasa as destination and as transit routes to other areas out of the country.
Duration and budget
- The initial planned duration of a project should be 33 months, starting on 1 April 2016. Contracts will be entered into on yearly basis; the first one to cover 9 months (1 April – 31 December 2016).
- Depending on the project design, the budget ranges from EUR 300,000 to EUR 600,000 for the full duration of 33 months. The budget for the first 9 months should not exceed EUR 169,000 for 2016.
- Applicant as well as (if applicable) co-applicants need to be fully registered in the country of implementation i.e. Kenya
- Applicant as well as (if applicable) co-applicants need to demonstrate a successful track record in addressing child trafficking and unsafe migration of children in Kenya.
