We believe in a world without trafficking, exploitation, or discrimination in which everyone's rights are respected and in which men and women are free to pursue opportunities equally.
Our mission is to provide financial, emotional, and educational support for survivors of human trafficking and victims of domestic violence in Albania; to prevent human trafficking in the Balkans; and to educate the public about human trafficking. We have been providing support for Albanian trafficking survivors since 2003.
It is estimated that there are over 10,000 Albanian girls and women who are currently or who formerly have been victims of illegal trafficking for the purpose of enforced prostitution, one third of whom are younger than eighteen. They are then sold and resold from one organized crime syndicate to another, and the treatment they receive is unspeakable.
Find out more about lesson plans developed for targeted high schools and middle schools in Albania.
This curriculum has been successfully adapted for use in the Philippines and we encourage others to make similar use of these lesson plans.
"They told me that my brother wanted me to go to Italy, where I could work for an Albanian family and earn money to support my family. They also threatened me that bad things could happen to my family if I would resist them or try to run away."
We believe we were victims but are victims no longer.
We are better than before.
