What we do

We work in both Albania and UK to help those most vulnerable to Human Trafficking. In addition to providing immediate shelter and care to those rescued, we run a number of programs to prevent future Trafficking.

Emergency response

In emergencies including natural disasters we provide immediate relief to those most affected by providing access to food, shelter and medical help to help relief the immediate threat of being lured by traffickers

Advice and Service Centres

In several regions around Albania we provide Advice and Service centres for those needing help after being trafficked or vulnerable to trafficking - this could be mental help support, legal advice or basic needs help

Economic Empowerment

Many community groups are vulnerable to trafficking in Albania including young people who have not been able to find employment. We give these marginalised groups training, find internships and set up self employment

Education & Community Development

We are helping train educators in Albania on more ethical practices when teaching the young people of Albania and getting communities to recognise trafficking issues and work together better
