Challenge

Each year young women are exploited and trafficked across international borders and within their own countries. Risk factors include war, unemployment, war, and the responsibilities of providing for children, the elderly, and extended families. Many want to build better lives and for those fleeing conflict, survive . Through force, deception, and coercion, traffickers and smugglers exploit young women's economic vulnerabilities and ambitions to exploit, torture, and enslave.

Solution

HERA's supports women entrepreneurs in Armenia, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine to scale up their micro-enterprises to train and employ young women at risk of dangerous migration, trafficking and exploitation. HERA also assists its former grantees fleeing conflict to restart their ventures.

Long-Term Impact

To date HERA has awarded 514 grants to women's ventures in Central and Eastern Europe generating at least 700 new jobs for women at risk of dangerous migration. HERA has trained over 1100 people in nine countries on entrepreneurship, business, and/or mentoring. HERA has evaluated 75% of its grantees a year or more later. Of those evaluated, 96% of the grantees supported by HERA are still operating a year or more later and 65% have grown and/or provided new employment.
