Emergency in the Sahel
Support the urgent needs of children in the Sahel affected by the food crisis  

Kenya

In Kenya, Tdh is working in the protracted refugee crisis in the Dadaab camps at the Somali border, where hundreds of children are separated from their families, and in Korogocho, one of Kenya's busiest and poorest urban areas in Nairobi, where around 200,000 people, 40% of whom are children, live in an area of 1.5 km2.. Tdh protects children and young people from risks such as sexual violence, abuse and early marriage. We support unaccompanied and separated children and promote access to education.

What we do

Child protection

In Dadaab, Tdh provides child protection services to children, youth and caregivers in refugee camps and the host community villages around the camps. The aim is to strengthen the access of refugee and asylum-seeker communities to quality and sustainable child protection services for children at risk of abuse, neglect, exploitation and violence. In the informal urban settlement of Korogocho, Tdh protects children from exploitation, violence and abuse. Tdh promotes optimal physical, emotional and a safe development and provides early learning opportunities for the most vulnerable children aged up to 6 years.

The girl Bola has been living with her parents and siblings in a refugee camp in Kenya since 2011. After being exploited for almost 7 hours a day for work, she has now returned to school.
