PROTECTING VICTIMS OF VIOLENCE + INITIATING AN ANTI-TRAFFICKING PROGRAM

San Lorenzo, ECUADOR

Project Description

Poverty, low educational levels, and 10 years of burgeoning migrant populations of refugees and informal settlers to San Lorenzo have caused a crisis level of violence and human trafficking. Despite a 147 year long history of traditional services, the Sisters are taking on the challenges of this new crisis in an effort to stop modern forms of slavery. This program has already interfaced with the more established Daughters of Charity program in Bogota, with a small grant and shared expertise. Trafficking is not yet on the agenda of community leaders and other stakeholders in San Lorenzo, so there will be an educational component in addition to the anticipated direct impact on about 2,000 persons, most of whom are women and the young.
