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 the light of empowering key actors in the community, Mary Ward Loreto Women has been developing trainings on Broad Based Organizing with various members of the local community in Shkodra. Those attending this training also shared the issues of the community they work with and the enthusiasm about working together according to this methodology. The group has decided to develop another meeting in September, to select an issue which will be the focus for their working together, in order to promote effective change in the local community.
