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:

  • Develop draft standard operating procedures (SOPs) on inter-disciplinary case management and coordination of CSEC cases, for consideration and adoption of stakeholders engaged in responding to CSEC cases.
  • Develop training content regarding inter-disciplinary case management and coordination of CSEC cases that can be used in curriculums for a training benefiting Court User Committees (CUC’s), DCS Child Protection Centers (CPC’s) and other actors, as well as for other training curriculums as needed. The content should focus on improving CSEC effective case management through the stages of a protection and prosecution case – from referral/reporting to investigations and removal from exploitation to prosecution and rehabilitation.
  • Using the above mentioned training content, as well as other training content IJM is developing (such as psychosocial care, law enforcement and prosecution training content), produce a curriculum that can be used to train actors from the justice sector, social services and civil society from CUC’s, CPCs etc from across the region on best practice and SOPs for inter-disciplinary case management and coordination.
