Albania Mission Against
Human Trafficking

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.

During the month of November, the youth project launched a human development training with young people. The theme was: ‘’Self-perception and the impact of social media’’.

The first trainings were held in Burrel, Librazhd and Kucove. All the young participants were happy to receive this training and the information provided. They live in a time when technology and especially social networks take up most of their day and it is a key factor determining the development of personality and character for them. In this training, young people were offered an alternative, seeing social media from a wider point of view, emphasizing its impact on how they see themselves in society and how they perceive themselves through social networks. It involved self-awareness training and choice making.
