ANTI-TRAFFICKING & GENDER-BASED VIOLENCE
We operate on the guiding principle that people who are harmed in relationship are also healed in relationship.
Traffickers and abusers usually target vulnerable people, using lies to prey on those desperate for a better life.
To respond to the needs of victims, we are working in diverse places around the world—Albania, Azerbaijan, Cambodia, Liberia, Philippines, Sierra Leone, Papua New Guinea and Ukraine –to design prevention, protection, aftercare, and advocacy programs to create a path to restoration. Critical to this is working at all levels of a society—from raising awareness at the household level, to education of law enforcement and social workers, to advocacy at the highest levels of government.
Faith Alliance Against Slavery and Trafficking (FAAST)
What we’re doing about it
We recognise that in order to combat issues of trafficking in persons and sexual and gender-based violence, it is necessary to work at all levels of society.
WHI’s legacy of trafficking-prevention work was recognised this year when the European Union Delegation to Sierra Leone approached WHI to facilitate a prevention and recovery project for the country. This new project will build upon previous work done by WHI to increase awareness and advocacy through Village Parent Groups, as well as train new community members and review the country’s current Anti-Trafficking Act.
WHI worked with the Department of Education, Youth, and Sport to engage with high school students, and raise their awareness on women and girls’ rights and gender equality.
Our Impact As A Global WHI Alliance
In 2017, we celebrated our anti-trafficking and gender-based violence impact.
