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.

The above statement is a statement that the MWL Women’s Project is dedicated to and which is becoming a reality in so many women’s lives. The Mary Ward Loreto Women’s Project works with the most vulnerable women in remote areas where women and girls want to take control of their lives. When they were young girls, the families didn’t invest in them; the only opportunity given to them was marriage; not education, not vocational training. No thought was given to how these young girls would overcome life challenges when they eventually became mothers. MWLW Project is helping to create an environment where women feel free to make decisions at home, even the decision to work. MWLW has undertaken this mission to help these women change their circumstances from unempowered to empowered, helping women to claim their rights through human development and the facilitation of employment.
