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.

In collaboration with “La Casa Nel Cuore” social center, we conducted a different kind of training on trafficking in human beings and modern slavery.

Participants in this training were students of Social Work at the Masters level. The training was different because the students were already informed about trafficking and modern slavery; We focused most on the Albanian human trafficking situation, including the referral mechanisms in Albania, and what they can do as future social workers to identify and prevent this phenomena in our society.
