Facilitate exposure and learning about human trafficking in the context of sex trafficking and exploitation in Italy. OM Italia desires to create more awareness by offering an opportunity to visit the field.
OM Italia runs a ministry among prominently Nigerian women and Brazilian transsexuals with the aim to support individuals to leave prostitution. This takes place through street outreach and individual case management. The outreach week will partly support these activities and exposure to what different ways exist to take action against human trafficking.
You will receive training on the topic of human trafficking and what answering the needs looks like in practice. The programme consists of interactive sessions, field work through outreach among victims of trafficking and visiting different sites the team works at, prayer times and other activities depending on the profile of the participants (eg. use of creative methods in serving the women the OM team works with.)
