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.

30 July 2017 – World Day against Trafficking in Persons. In 2013, the General Assembly of the United Nations designated July 30 as the World Day against Trafficking in Persons. The UN declared that such a day was necessary to “raise awareness of the situation of victims of human trafficking and for the promotion and protection of their rights.”

In 2014, at a General Congregation, held in Loyola, Spain, the IBVM made a commitment to work to end Trafficking in Persons. Make 30 July, 2017 a day to renew our personal commitment and take action.
