Uniting Britain and 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.

Month: April 2019



Mary Ward Loreto Foundation cordially invites you to participate in the launching of the Research on Migration of Albanians and the sharing of the results of this study.

Date: 26 April 2019;
Place: Tirana International Hotel, Balsha Room;
Time: 10:00 am. – 12:00 am.

During this conference we will share and discuss the causes and consequences of Albanian Migration. The results show a large tendency of Albanians to leave the country as a result of socio-economic factors. What makes this study unique is the use of comprehensive methodology and the first measurement of quality of life in Albania with the instrument of the World Health Organization.

This study aims to promote the recommendations for creating and modifying policies to prevent illegal migration, and to aid in the reintegration of returning migrants into society.

Your presence, shared thoughts and concrete findings regarding this issue are most welcome in the service of this great problem our country is facing.

Character Driven Leadership Training with MWL Staff, April 17, 2019.


On Wednesday, April 17th, the MWL Staff completed the 5th day of the Character Driven Leadership Training lead by Trainer, Edlira Gjoni, Next Generation Leader, McCain Institute for International Leadership.

During this day of training, the MWL Foundation Staff had the opportunity to share and speak about their favorite leaders, the importance of role models in leadership and how ethics and values influence our choice of leaders.

During the session we focused on how the best leaders build trust.

According to Stephen M. R. Covey:

“Almost everywhere we turn, trust is on the decline. Trust in our culture at large, in our institutions, and in our companies is significantly lower than a generation ago. Research shows that only 49% of employees trust senior management, and only 28% believe CEOs are a credible source of information.

The first job of any leader is to inspire trust. Trust is confidence born of two dimensions: character and competence. Character includes your integrity, motive, and intent with people. Competence includes your capabilities, skills, results, and track record. Both dimensions are vital.

With the increasing focus on ethics in our society, the character side of trust is fast becoming the price of entry in the new global economy. However, the differentiating and often ignored side of trust — competence — is equally essential. You might think a person is sincere, even honest, but you won’t trust that person fully if he or she doesn’t get results. And the opposite is true. A person might have great skills and talents and a good track record, but if he or she is not honest, you’re not going to trust that person either.”

MWL will continue the leadership training during the staff week in Shkodra which will take place May 13th-17th. During that time, members will present their unique Leadership Action Project, which will lead to the certification of each of the staff members.
