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.

 

Mary Ward Loreto Women’s project continues to focus its efforts on the sustained development of women in need. Due to a joint partnership with The Red Cross Branch in Lezhe, an ongoing tailoring training with 20 women have been supported by MWL.  This training has two main objectives: a. the vocational tailoring training for women and b. human development in the framework of women’s rights. The topics include training in awareness against human trafficking, safe migration and women’s health.  Women at the end of the course will be equipped with certificates acknowledged by the Ministry of Finance and Economy.

During this project there has been a strong collaboration with the Local Employment Inspectorate with the aim to improve the level of women’s knowledge on the steps they need to follow to become employed.  These women are specifically preparing for the employment market.
