We believe in a world without trafficking, exploitation, or discrimination in which everyone's rights are respected and in which men and women are free to pursue opportunities equally.

Where is Albania?

Albania is off the coast of Italy and it shares a border with Greece, Macedonia, Kosovo, and Montenegro.

Albania has a population of 2.8 Million people and has a land area similar to the state of Hawaii.

Trafficking is a total violation of human rights, a form of slavery, and completely unacceptable in the 21st century.

True Stories

Once he beat me so hard that I cannot remember, and I fell on the floor. A friend of mine passing by to meet me found me on the floor, covered in blood.

My name is E.R. and I am from Elbasan. When I was 15, my parents married me, against my will, to a man aged 35, whom I did not love. So started my miseries.

Not too long afterwards, I abandoned him and returned to my family. But my parents did not accept me back because I had dishonored them by leaving my husband...

We deserve respect.

Our Mission:

To support trafficking and domestic violence survivors in Albania as they move out of the shelter, reintegrate, and support themselves independently.

Our Vision:

A world without sexual violence or human trafficking.
