Our projects in East Africa
(Don’t be lured by a false dream)
We have realized that the East Africa religion is experiencing unprecedented and increasing levels of migration of women and girls to the Middle East for domestic work. In transit and on arrival, these women are at high risk of abuse, exploitation and of falling into situations of slavery. At the same time, high numbers of women are returning from situations of servitude in the Middle East in need of mental health, legal, integration and other support. Footprint to freedom seeks to create alternative livelihood options among women and girls who are most likely to migrate, as well as returnees; Through survivor-led empowerment groups, community-based savings and loan mechanisms to overcome economic, personal, and social barriers and open new employment opportunities.
