The project provides 20 victims of sex trafficking with a 1 year holistic residential rehabilitation program that caters to their psychological, medical, physical and economic recovery. The overall mission of our project is geared towards rehabilitating, educating and empowering the beneficiaries - as well as setting them on course for sustainable self-sufficiency by providing vocational skills training, employment and entrepreneurial opportunities.
According to NAPTIP's report of 2016, the rate of human trafficking in Nigeria is on the increase,especially after Libya. The victims, when brought into the community, have little or no support structure neither opportunity available to them. Furthermore, access to resources that enable them to deal with the trauma, impact and consequences of their past experiences, is sorely lacking. These trafficked victims also face many challenges with reintegrating back into their families and communities
The major root determinant of vulnerable to trafficking and exploitation is poverty & disenfranchisement. Our goal is to tackle this issue by providing a program through which these beneficiaries can achieve economic self-sufficiency based on the development of Life skills, attaining certified vocational skills, as well as entrepreneurial and employment opportunities. Victims require multi-faceted approach in service provision due to the complexities of the experiences they have had to endure
In an 18 month period, successfully rehabilitate, educate and empower 20 sex trafficked victims by providing NABTEB* certified vocational skills training and life skills development measured using OECD* quality of life indices, so that beneficiaries can be effectively integrated back into society equipped with the capacity for economic self-sufficiency and self-determination. *National Business and Technical Examination Board and *Organization for Economic Cooperation Development.
