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.

October is the month of awareness raising against human trafficking and modern slavery. The Youth Project of Mary Ward Loreto had an awareness session for the youth of Sejfulla Maleshova school in Kelcyre, about 4 hours away from Tirana.

Collaboration with school leaders has been ongoing for 3 years, and we enjoy our work each time we return to the school.

31 high school students from last year took part in the training. Some of them participated in this training when they were in their first year and remembered information about this phenomenon, making the training more active and dynamic for students participating for the first time. The interaction during the 1 hour training, with the information and exercises, allowed them to share their community experiences with real-life experiences of exploitation victims.

High school: Sejfulla Maleshova, Kelcyrë.
