As the leading counter trafficking organisation HAART Kenya has helped over 900 victims of human trafficking and assisted 90 thousand people through trainings workshops and economic empowerment.

HAART work is structured according to the UN 4 Ps Paradigm: Prevention, Protection of Victims Prosecution and Partnership

Under Prevention HAART offers support to vulnerable population, mostly women and youth. By training them, giving new skills and capacity HAART reducies vulnerability to trafficking.
