Education / Life Skills

Technology literacy, job counseling, skill-building, and networking are core parts of the D & E program.  Survivors have found work in shops, bakeries, restaurants, and the hospitality and communications industries.  Others have completed their education and become small business owners.

Art Therapy / Survivor Art

Art therapy assists survivors by providing an outlet to cope with negative emotions.  It is a creative tool to process trauma successfully.  See our work in  our downloadable art brochures below.

Kinderhaus Child Care Program

AAGW provides educational supplies, food, rent, and teachers’ salaries for one childcare center in Shkodra in Northern Albania serving the children of survivors, enabling parent survivors to work and support themselves


The Shkodra Kinderhaus is a place of fun and learning.  Painting, games, and songs are a part of every day. The children are introduced to pre-reading skills like numbers and letters and learn about the seasons, transportation, the importance of water, protecting the environment, and using “magic words” like please and thank you

Peer Support & Mentor Program

Peer Support & Mentor Program

The support of peers is a critical component of successful trauma recovery, empowering survivors to fight the stigma associated with sex trafficking.  We assist D & E’s mentoring program in which women who have overcome the degradation and exploitation of sex trafficking become role models to our younger members, providing ongoing support, encouragement, and hope.

We believe in respecting oneself and each other.
