DCS and a local NGO continued to jointly operate a national 24-hour toll-free hotline for reporting cases of child trafficking, labor exploitation, and domestic abuse; the hotline’s main call center was located in a government-owned building in Nairobi.
The government reported the hotline received 1,195 reports of child trafficking in 2016, the same number it reported in the previous reporting period.
KENYA: Tier 2 The Government of Kenya does not fully meet the minimum standards for the elimination of trafficking; however, it is making significant efforts to do so.
The government demonstrated increasing efforts compared to the previous reporting period; therefore, Kenya remained on Tier 2.
