ATTraCT+ (Transnational Cooperation and New Technologies to Train Social Workers on Trafficking in Human Beings) is a project funded by the European Union, under the Erasmus+ programme.
The project aims to develop and improve skills and knowledge of social workers and other relevant actors, in the field of the protection and support of human trafficking victims, through transnational, joint staff trainings as well as through development and implementation of digital training tools and other materials that will be designed to train social workers on the issue of trafficking and other related matters.
Improved capacities and knowledge of the social workers will positively influence their daily practice related to human trafficking which will lead to victims’ enhanced access to rights and, subsequently, to their social inclusion.
The Travelogue, one of the deliverable of the project, includes information on the migration routes of victims of trafficking and on the most widespread forms of exploitation in the following countries: Cyprus, France, Italy and Spain. It also contains information on the assistance victims receive and the various actors involved in the protection of victims, as well as in the fight against trafficking and the existing practices of multilevel cooperation. You can find the Travelogue in English here.
The Comic, another deliverable, depicts a short story of exploitation and rescue of two victims of human trafficking. The aim of the Comic is self-identification and awareness rising among victims of human trafficking or those at risk of exploitation; it can be also utilized by the social workers when working with victims and potential victims of human trafficking.
