Anti-Trafficking Awareness and Education — Albania

This project is focused on the prevention of the occurrences of trafficking people from Albania to other countries for various reasons. Albania is a source country for this phenomenon. Raising the awareness in families with high-risk girls and women is one of the major focuses of this project that works to prevent this problem.

This project also is focused on providing hope for high-risk people–possibly in terms of helping with job training or other employment related activities. Unemployment is one of the major reasons of trafficking here. Men and boys are also trafficked for hard-labor employment overseas. Awareness campaigns also include distribution of literature and organizing speaking events at schools and other community events.
