Main activityCapacity building
Since 1999, Reaching Out Romania has worked with victims of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. During this time they have assisted over 470 victims, mostly Romanian women and girls who have been enslaved and abused in European countries. Victims are referred to us by the police, Child Protection Department and NGO’s from destination countries. However, when necessary, they organize the direct rescue of victims. Whilst they are in their care, they offer them a place of shelter as well as psychological, medical and legal assistance and make them part of their family. Reaching Out Romania shapes their activities around the needs of this extended family and they provide everybody with long term assistance. They help many to initiate or continue their studies, to seek jobs or do whatever it takes for them to rebuild their lives.
