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.

On the 16th of December 2016, the first Leadership training was held at “Lagje Mirdita”, in Durres. Although part of Durres municipality, this neighborhood suffers a high level of marginalization and is composed of a homogeneous community of migrants from the region of Mirdita. 13 boys and girls from the MWL Youth group are committed to following the MWL Youth Leadership Program and are being trained in leadership skills. The purpose is to enable them to become transformed into important actors of their community and beyond. The 1st training delivered by MWL Psychologist Trainer, Zana Guri, has offered a wide panorama of what Leadership means and how it can become a touchable concept also for these youngsters raised in difficult backgrounds.
