Objective of the Project

Homeless people are often in danger of human trafficking because of their vulnerability. We have an experience with recruitments, when these people are attracted (often abroad) by the view of profit. Homeless women belong to a specific group that faces different forms of violence than men. They are often bullied or abused by their partners. Also they are more threatened by forced prostitution or labour exploitation at home. A study dealing with the threat of human trafficking with a focus on homeless women has not yet been carried out in the Czech Republic. Also there is no significant cooperation between organizations focused on the homeless and those on the problem of human trafficking. The project’s goal is to decrease the risks of human trafficking with homeless women through a field research of the phenomena’s specifics and the most effective system of prevention and help, followed by the analysis of results and its spreading in the Czech Republic.
