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.

Stopping the phenomenon of Illegal Emigration has been a challenge in Albania for the last 20 years.  MWL is planting hope by creating opportunities.

In Puke-Fushe Arres, we have begun a course in wood crafting. In a few months, participants will be empowered to generate more income for their families by selling their handcrafted artistic products and souvenirs to tourists. The individuals are examples to those looking to succeed despite the challenges of living in remote areas of Albania.

Best of luck to those participating in the course! Stay tuned to see some of their beautiful work!
