Short Description:

Overall goal

Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children in Tourism (SECT) is recognised as a global phenomenon that impacts millions of children each year. SECT was identified by NGOs in early 1990s and international tourism industry organisations began to address the issue. One of the actions taken by tour operators was the development of the "Code of Conduct" against sexual exploitation of children in tourism and travel.

The Government of Kenya and 25 hotels have signed the Code. Awareness rising and training has been carried out around Mombasa and Kwale districts. However there is a need to continue training the hotels on the Code and encourage those that have not signed to do so.

This proposal is aiming as a FOLLOW-UP to the OEZA -Project No 2319-00/03, "Measures against Sexual Abuse of Children and Youth in Tourism as part of AIDS/HIV Prevention", duration 07/2003 to 12/2006.

Most of the project objectives could be successfully implemented. Deficits can be seen regarding establishing a sustainable coordination and monitoring structure at the Coast, the central tourist area. An assessment has shown that a one-year follow-up phase would be necessary for a) capacity building at the tourism industry partners for implementing the Code of Conduct (especially after a new proce-dure has been developed by the international Code of Conduct organization); b) the extension of Code partners to other sectors such as smaller guest houses, bars and restaurants, some of them, known as 'focal points' for young prostitutes; c) establishing a sustainable monitoring structure under the leadership of Solwodi; d) extending the awareness campaign among tourists; f) capacity building at Solwodi in order to become the main partner for the tourism sector in regard to measures against child sex tourism.
