Human trafficking is a result of social, cultural, and political conditions that make people vulnerable. Poverty, war and conflict, migration, lack of access to basic human rights, and many other related factors create conditions where the powerful have the opportunity to oppress and exploit the weak.
To human trafficking, those most vulnerable to trafficking must have the knowledge and resources they need to protect themselves and their communities.
We are focused on making sure that there is reduction to no aspects of human trafficking across East Africa. We champion antihuman trafficking efforts in Rwanda, Uganda and Kenya with a key focus on labor and sex trafficking. We aim to develop movements in the interior of Rwanda working with CBOs to be places where vulnerable community members can be trained and we can develop solutions to root causes of human trafficking
We aim to reshape build on policies that enable counter human trafficking efforts by urging governments and power structures to enact systemic changes and robust enforcement. Our aim is to make sure that there is no environment for perpetrators to engage in human trafficking.
We mobilize and empower at-risk communities through targeted training and connections to resources, fostering grassroots resistance against slavery. Our community-centric approach amplifies human and labor rights, thereby creating resilience against exploitation.

Based on research done in East Africa and Rwanda, there is a low understanding of organized crime, especially when looking at UNTOC and its protocols around smuggling of migrants, smuggling of firearms, and trafficking in persons. Join Morris Andati, the Executive Director of Smart Talk Cafe, as he discusses organized crime and its different forms.
we are joined by Njeri Kimani, the Executive Director of Arts for Rights, as she examines the effect, situation on the ground, and potential solutions regarding the surge in the creation of gangs in Kenya. Our conversation focuses on the emergence, influence, and durability of these gangs in their different communities, as well as the power they wield over those communities, as well as the role that each sector plays in the formation and dispersal of these gangs.
We take a look at the issue of human trafficking from an African point of view. As Mr. Andati goes about his work combating labour and sex trafficking in East Africa, he investigates the loopholes and problems that contribute to the rise in human trafficking in Africa. Specifically, he focuses on the causes of this rise. In addition to this, he offers recommendations for the kinds of actions that might be taken in order to lessen the severity of the problem in Africa. This is an introductory podcast that will help advocate for victims and look into potential solutions to the key vulnerabilities that can lead to any form of human trafficking. It will also bring together a variety of experts and survivors who have personal experience with the issue of human trafficking in Africa.
