Napak (Uganda)

Napak district in Karamoja is one of the known places of origin of the east-African child trafficking1 circuit. Families (often under false pretences) sell their children for about 5 euro’s to traffickers, who force them to work as street beggars, housemaids, in sexual exploitation or child labour. To prevent exploitation, (sexual) violence and child trafficking, CCA wants to offer vulnerable children and families better alternatives in the form of education. Besides that, we want to sensitize communities about the risks and offer returnees or rescued children better future prospects. We have been looking for a suitable and child-centred local partner in Napak since late 2019.
