Who We Are
Stop the Traffik- Kenya was officially launched in February 2018. STTK seeks to prevent trafficking by engaging in community transformation, gathering and sharing knowledge as well as through global campaigning. The membership is open to individuals, civil society organizations and the private sector.
Gathering and sharing knowledge
STOP THE TRAFFIK’s character defines how we communicate who we are, what we do and how we do it. These characteristics should enable STOP THE TRAFFIK’s message and materials to be contextualised for any audience or region whilst maintaining an undeniable sense of who we are
We convey the issue of human trafficking without cliché, tired or expected images. We are innovative and challenging in our approach. We strive to be creative and different to provoke understanding and ultimately action that will end the buying and selling of people.
We want to empower; those who might have experienced trafficking, those who’ve never heard of it and those who want to do something to prevent it.
We view the human being with ultimate dignity and feel uncomfortable using images that exploit or victimise. We invite people to hear and respond to our message without being threatening or manipulated by it.
We challenge ignorance and apathy. We challenge culture, systems and all sectors of society that allow and enable human trafficking to continue. We are always legal. We challenge to bring change that will prevent and end the buying and selling of people.
Our message and materials are excellent; we have high standards and take time to ensure they are met. All communications conform to brand guidelines and it’s understood that this is within the resources and budget available. As a campaigning movement effective communication and message are central to our impact.
We are inclusive in the way that we talk; we are always conscious not to alienate people through language, jargon or assumptions.
