Anti-Trafficking Base in Italy
Italy is a major destination and transit country for women, children, and men trafficked transnationally for the purposes of commercial sexual exploitation and forced labor, with dramatic increase in recent years within numbers of refugees and asylum seekers. In Italy women are often taken from detentions centers and sold for as little as $5 per customer, and it would take a salary of less than $500 per month to keep them from street work.
In partnership with local and international non-profits, businesses, and faith-based initiatives, Nicole will be working this year to create a long term base and team to provide training, mentoring, and employment to women from at-risk circumstances.
