Ashshash: for men and women who have escaped trafficking
20,000 people (of whom 70% women) who have experienced trafficking will be economically and socially rehabilitated. Public and private institutions will provide employment or in-kind support for entrepreneurship to men and women who have escaped trafficking. The Government will better address the prevention of trafficking, protection of victims, prosecution of traffickers in the revision and enacting of policies, and create partnerships, for bringing about systemic changes.

20’000 trafficked men and women (70% women; 60% poor, out of whom 50% disadvantaged) will be economically, socially and psychosocially rehabilitated, to empower them to a life of dignity. The beneficiaries will receive skills training and coaching for wage or self-employment opportunities. The men and women, who wish to become entrepreneurs, will obtain seed money from the project and benefit from linkages with private companies, to establish and operate their own business. Those who opt for wage employment will benefit from employment opportunities with companies, who support the cause of reintegration of trafficked men and women. At the same time, the men and women will acquire life skills and - through psychosocial counselling - will be empowered to deal with their past. Economic empowerment of the men and women who have escaped trafficking will play a vital role in supporting them to become economically independent, increase their confidence and protect them from harm. It will also contribute to preventing re-victimization (due to stigmatization) from society and re-trafficking.
