How did a Talent Trip turn into a Trafficking Trip? - Because Whoosh! - just like that she was gone!

Tuliana was 14, and had lived in her home country of Kenya with different people, in different places, at different times, for as long as she could remember. Then, out of the blue, she was ushered onto a plane with a group of teenagers, and flown out of Kenya.

At a London airport she was separated from the group, and whisked off in a car. Her experiences after this were creepy: she didn't know where she was, or why.

Firstly, she was delivered to a home where she was grossly mistreated. Then to another where she wasn't badly treated but she definitely didn't belong. Finally, to another where she was treated really well - yet in all those homes she was a slave - a modern day child slave.

Tuliana's teen friend, Jonathan, whom she met on the plane during this Talent Trip was painfully worried. And on returning to Kenya, he went to extremes to try find her -literally sacrificing his privileged life as a son of a British diplomat. This caused him to be thrown out of his family and the country and shipped back to live with his paternal grandparents in England.

Being kicked out only increased his motivation and efforts to find Tuliana. Jonathan mobilised teenagers from all over the world to join his "Operation Find Tuliana" campaign. The campaign picked momentum fast and begun unsettling government systems. Teenagers were asking deep penetrating questions that stirred world leaders to STOP and LISTEN as teenagers demanded for ACTION not just TALK.

This campaign then ignited braveness and vigilance among regular citizens who raised concerns and reported suspicious cases that led to the discovery that numerous children were being exploited and abused up and down the country. Some children were living a full-fledged slaves and others as part times slaves - all, modern-day child slaves.

Tuliana was also unearthed. She had been wrongfully adopted in a supposedly "good family" but nevertheless a slave, the Cash cow for this family's business.
