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.

On February 15th MWL Men’s project organized a training, facilitated by the MWL trainer,  Zana Guri, in Lushnja.  The topic covered was: ‘’The Prevention of Radicalization and Extreme violence in Albania’’. 25 men aged 25 -65 years, from the Lushnje region, participated in the session.

The group was interested to know how this phenomenon could affect their families and communities and how strong this phenomena is in Albania. This session was an awareness raising meeting and each participant had the chance to reflect on their different realities and find time for insightful moments. The discussion was intense and very coherent. This meeting was a challenge in general because of patriarchy and the hidden nature of a man’s development in Albania.
