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.

MWL Women’s project working in Tropoje is not only working at grassroots with beneficiary groups in the outlying villages, but it also has a center in the city called Bajram Curri. This MWL centre began operating in July, 2015. The center opened in order to provide services to women in the areas where MWLW operates in the north and to combat trafficking in persons. There is now an opportunity for all women to receive services or to be oriented to receive them.

The MWL centre offers the following services:

The functioning and effective provision of services in the MWL centre is the priority for our
work. The aim is to achieve a free and healthy society.
