In a bid to make our community outreach plans more sustainable, Missing Child Kenya (MCK) has embarked on a project to install MISSING CHILD NOTICE BOARDS (6ft by 32 inches) at high traffic public access areas (HUBS) to act as an information channel (SPOKES) for the surrounding areas. Our aim is to assist families that are seeking information on their lost children with a reference point for existing cases that have been already brought to the authorities within Kenya. We have seen the following gains with this project:
- Increased awareness on the issue of missing children.
- Immediate source of helpful information to worried and distraught parents.
- Important leads and referrals have arisen from the crowd sourcing approach of well-wishers and concerned citizens sharing our missing child posters.
- Proactive reports on missing children have increased.
- We have been able to document cold cases as far back as 5 years ago.
- Creation of a data bank to start observing patterns and trends with respect to ages, gender and hotspots (geographical locations).
- The poster format we use has also helped to educate and create awareness on how to report and share information about missing children in a manner that will yield result.
- Partnerships – A consolidated database with all record of missing children helps boost search and reunification process for all actors in the child protection sector.
We endeavor to provide an all-weather aluminum casing notice board (6ft x 32”) with a lockable glass cover to specific HUBS across Kenya’s 47 counties.
