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.

Activities developed by MWL youth during February in human development framework and awareness against Human Trafficking.

 

On February 6th, awareness raising activities were organized in 4 different areas of Albania.

The awareness sessions were held with young people in Elbasan, Tirana, and in rural areas like Dajc of Shkodra and Ndroq, Tirana.

The youth received information about trafficking of human beings and were introduced to the phenomenon of modern slavery. Social media is a constant influence in the lives of these young people. At such a young age, with so much interaction with social media, it can easily become a source for danger, exploitation, and online recruiting. Raising awareness of social media’s role in trafficking has been one of the most important priorities for our youth trainings. In total, 163 young people participated in these awareness-raising activities in February.
