In December 2018, Sophie Otiende, a Program Consultant with HAART Kenya, visited Prerana to understand the functioning of the organization and its various programs.

HAART or Awareness Against Human Trafficking ( is a non-governmental organization based in Nairobi, Kenya. It is the only organization in the country that works exclusively on eradicating human trafficking.
