Helping victims return home and re-build
While the project's main focus has been on preventing trafficking and exploitation from occurring in the first place, it also offers help to those who've already been through the trauma.
Whether rescued from the exploitation and sent back to their home countries by the authorities, or those who've managed to escape the abuse and returned on their own, many of these young women arrive back empty handed after suffering extreme abuses - sexual, physical and psychological.
Their needs are many - and they are complex.
Therefore, this particular approach, has two key objectives:
- Supporting a more humane reintegration process for returned victims of trafficking
- Improving the capacities of service providers to reintegrate victims of trafficking (especially referral services, counseling and case documentation)
We've also developed a series of tools and proven practices in the fight to prevent trafficking and labour exploitation
