RENATE colleagues at Psycho-Social Center ‘VATRA,’ Albania, share news of the success of their anti-human trafficking awareness-raising Forum with the students at Himara High school , on the topic of ‘Information on the phenomenon of Human Trafficking: Prevention and identification mechanisms as well as work on the reintegration of victims who have survived trafficking.’
Through active participation and discussions, students not only gained knowledge and insights, they also appreciated how education plays an important part in ensuring youth are less vulnerable to traffickers. The ability to gain employment and be self-supporting is a significant safety to reducing vulnerability to trafficking and exploitation.
These successful forums will continue in September, 2019 in the districts of Fier, Vlora, Berat, Gjirokastra and Saranda.
This is an initiative under the ‘’Youth Engagement in Action for the Prevention of Human Trafficking,’ funded by the small grants programme at the United States Embassy in Tirana, Albania.
