Job Training

Economic Independence Through Job Training

Poverty is listed as a root cause of trafficking in almost every published study. Because poverty is a major risk factor, it must be addressed in order for survivors to remain free and to reduce their vulnerability to exploitation. Survivors who return home without job options are often re-trafficked or stigmatized by their family and community.

Every girl has unique goals, dreams and abilities, so we don’t offer a ‘one size fits all’ solution to vocational training and employment.  Instead, we provide vocational counseling to help girls identify their career ambitions, and support vocational training and job placement in a large variety of professions, from computers, to jewelry making, cooking and catering, textile printing and sewing, to accounting and medical school.
