UK and Albanian Mission Against Human Trafficking
Our mission is to eradicate Human Trafficking, based on the vision of Mary Ward which inspires people to reach their full potential.
It is underpinned by our core values of FREEDOM, JUSTICE and TRUTH. MWL will be known, in the local situation, for giving hope through strong advocacy and operational excellence.
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.
Based on the UK Citizen's Advice model, our Advice and Service Centres provide a range of advice and advocacy but importantly act as a portal for individuals vulnerable to or who have experienced human trafficking
In 2022 ASCs handled 1446 cases
For many in Albania, Especially young people, finding employment represents a real challenge. The despair they face makes them extremely vulnerable to traffickers. Our programme seeks to provide training, internships and employment opportunities
We have been extremely active in Albania to raise ethical standards in education and work in local communities putting this into practice. We work to raise awareness about the dangers of trafficking and encourage self-help projects to improve community life
