Who We Are

Anex (Activists networking against the exploitation of children) a children’s rights non profit organisation working to combat all forms of exploitation of children (including child trafficking, child labour, Commercial Sexual Exploitation of children, Children used by Adults to Commit Crime) through prevention and early intervention programs.

We are based in Cape Town with community workers offering training and support in the vulnerable communities identified as hot spots for victim targeting, particular small towns in the Karoo along the N1 and route to Namibia along the N7. In 2019 we hope to involve the N2 to Port Elizabeth. The main areas of intervention are:

  • Family education is also a priority as trafficking even may occur when children are sent to relatives in the city.
  • Working with truck drivers and transport companies as they are often best placed to see and prevent trafficking.
  • Training police to recognize and assist victims
  • Training and supporting social workers
