CONSULTANCY: PROJECT DOCUMENTARY TURKANA (KENYA) 199 views1 applications


Terre des Hommes Netherlands is looking for a professional (individual or team) on consultancy basis to produce photographs and documentary videos of our Eradication of Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children project in Turkana, Kenya.

1. Background

Terre des Hommes Netherlands (TdH-NL) is an international child rights organisation that works to create a world free from child exploitation. Since 1965 the organisation has protected children from violence, trafficking, sexual exploitation and abuse. The main target group of TdH-NL consists of children at risk and victims of exploitation and abuse. Vulnerable children who are marginalised by various social, cultural, economic, physical and environmental factors are mostly at risk of becoming victims of exploitation and abuse.

Child exploitation involves serious violations of the rights of the child. TdH-NL’s definition covers the worst forms of child labour, child trafficking, sexual exploitation, child abuse and violations of the sexual and reproductive health rights of adolescents. TdH-NL in East Africa works around four themes: prevention of Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC), Worst Forms of Child Labour (WFCL), Child Trafficking and unsafe-Migration (CTM), and Child Abuse (CA)/ Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights, mainly addressing child marriage and Female Genital Mutilation (FGM).

Guided by the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), TdH-NL uses a multi faceted and holistic 5Ps approach (partnership, promotion, prevention, protection and prosecution) in taking action to expose and address the violation of children’s rights. According to the TdH-NL Theory of Change different actors are involved in the protection of children; these include children, families and communities, the private sector, government, law enforcement agencies and CSOs.

Through collaboration with local civil society organisations (CSOs), TdH-NL implements development, humanitarian/relief and advocacy interventions in various parts of Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Uganda, supported by own TdH-NL funding, various foundations and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Dutch Government.

Since October 2018, TdH-NL in partnership with St. Peters Community Network (SAPCONE) has been implementing a 3-year project which aims to have a lasting impact​ on the lives of children and their families in Turkana County (Turkana Central – Lodwar and Kalokol and Turkana South – Lokichar) by contributing to the reduction of commercial sexual exploitation of children. TdH-NL’s unique and holistic approach​ includes the active involvement of children, families & communities, civil society, government, law enforcement agencies and the private sector to address the root causes of the phenomenon. The CSEC intervention focuses on identification, recovery, rehabilitation and reintegration of victims of CSEC.
