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.

“Life through the pages of a book” is the theme for the meetings taking place with young girls and a teacher every week at the Mary Ward Loreto Center in Fier. During these meetings the young girls and those who will take the high school graduation are receiving support for their studies. A teacher is helping the group to analyze and discuss the literary and social topics raised in the books. They also choose the books which they read and share their opinions together. The comments and questions raised have made these meetings interesting and sometimes very amusing.  These young girls have the potential to change their future and others through socio-economic empowerment. They feel exited and are eager to come to these meetings and are grateful for the support received in this exam preparation time.
