DEVELOPMENT OF TRAINING CONTENT AND PACKAGES FOR PROSECUTING AND ADJUDICATING CASES OF COMMERCIAL SEXUAL EXPLOITATION OF CHILDREN 87 views0 applications


Background Information

International Justice Mission is a global organization that protects people in poverty from violence. IJM partners with local authorities in 21 program offices in 14 countries to combat slavery, violence against women and children, and other forms of abuse against people who are poor. IJM works to rescue and restore victims, hold perpetrators accountable, and help strengthen public justice systems.

Together with partners, IJM collaborates with local authorities to strengthen justice systems, and build communities where all people can expect to be safe and protected. As justice systems serve survivors and hold criminals accountable, potential perpetrators realize they cannot abuse and exploit people without consequence—creating a powerful deterrent. Vulnerable people are protected in places where violence was once common.

Description of the Project

Implemented by International Justice Mission (IJM), the project aims to reduce prevalence of commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC) among targeted communities in Kilifi, Kwale, and Mombasa counties in the southern coastal region of Kenya through improving the criminal justice response to combat CSEC and through coordination with related social services. The project will strengthen the government of Kenya’s capacity to effectively investigate and prosecute CSEC through engagement with victims and communities to increase reporting and by engaging in training, mentoring, and technical assistance within the justice sector and with social service officials to promote victim-sensitive investigations, prosecutions, and case management.

Purpose of the Consultancy

The purpose of the consultancy is twofold:

  2. Using the above-mentioned training content, as well as other training content IJM is developing, produce a curriculum that can be used to train prosecutors and a curriculum that can be used to train magistrates selected from across the region.

Scope of Work

a) In consultation with IJM, ODPP and the Judiciary, the consultant will conduct a training needs assessment to determine the areas of capacity development that prosecution and magistrate curriculums will address.

b) Develop prosecution and magistrate training content that can be used in CSEC prosecution and adjudication, and other curriculums.

c) With above mentioned content, and content provided by IJM, develop training packages for training of prosecutors and magistrates.

International Justice Mission (IJM) is an international, non-governmental 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, nonprofit, evangelical organization focused on human rights, laws and law enforcement. It is currently the world's largest anti-slavery organization.

IJM combats violence including sex trafficking, forced labor slavery, illegal property grabbing, police abuse of power, child sexual assault, and citizenship rights abuse. The bulk of IJM's work focuses on sex trafficking. The organization's participation in high-profile raids of brothels and close coordination with third world police agencies have engendered criticism from human rights and sex worker organizations over its mission and tactics.

 IJM was founded and is headquartered in Washington, DC. It has 18 field offices in Africa, Latin America, and South and Southeast Asia. IJM employs 600+ full-time staff globally.

International Justice Mission was founded as a faith-based non-profit in 1997 by lawyer Gary Haugen. For its first case, the organization helped lead to the arrest of a rape suspect in Manila, Philippines.

In 1998, IJM claimed to help rescue more than 700 people; In addition to helping clients with legal representation, Haugen decided his organization could make a bigger impact by collaborating with governments to help improve legal systems in developing countries. IJM cites the Bible verse Isaiah 1:17 as one of their core commitments.
