ANTI-TRAFFICKING & GENDER-BASED VIOLENCE
We operate on the guiding principle that people who are harmed in relationship are also healed in relationship.
To respond to the needs of victims, we are working in diverse places around the world—Albania, Azerbaijan, Cambodia, Liberia, Philippines, Sierra Leone, Ukraine, and the United States–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.

What we’re doing about it
We recognize 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.
Raising awareness of sexual and gender-based violence
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.
