Albania Mission Against
Human Trafficking

Women's Project harvesting beans in Kallmet

MARY WARD LORETO is planting hope with a human rights approach to combating modern day slavery. This challenging mission is implemented through works of justice, education, grass roots action and systemic change. The aim is to eradicate poverty, the prime cause for human trafficking.

In order to contribute to systemic change in the Education System in Albania, Mary Ward Loreto is focused on issues of values and beliefs by addressing issues of ethical behaviour, tackling weaknesses, and exploring opportunities to strengthen selected aspects of the education system. For this purpose, a study has been designed that will analyse the perceptions and attitudes of pupils, students, teachers, parents, and lecturers, on their perception of ethics in education and the reasons for unethical behaviour, the types of its occurrence, and of corruption cases in schools all over Albania. It is because of the utmost importance placed on values development, by Mary Ward Loreto Foundation, that it has been decided to research in the field of Education, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education in Albania, as a focus to work for systemic change. The whole public education system will be included, starting from Kindergarten until Masters’ level at the University (from 3 year olds until 25 year olds) nationwide. Teachers, parents and children nationwide will be included based on the above-explained methodology. The results will be then shared widely, so that we can encourage systemic change in all levels of education. The Action Plan is now being fully implemented for this project.
