Trafficked victims and refugees are often vulnerable and could easily become targets of sexual exploitation and forced
According to UNCHR, half of the refugees and trafficked victims are women. On their way to Europe, they suffer physical and emotional abuse – including sexual and financial exploitation – which strips them of their dignity and confidence. Despite these challenges, the women tend to be resilient and do whatever it takes to support themselves and their families. Given opportunities and support, these women can contribute to the cultural diversity, innovation, and workforce of their host countries.
She Blossoms Africa empowers African female refugees and victims of trafficking to express their full potential and become financially independent by providing them with skills training, supporting and promoting their innovative ideas and raising their confidence to seek meaningful employment.
Our goal is to accelerate integration and improve the livelihoods of African refugees and victims of trafficking to become more integrated into the society, gain meaningful employment or start their own business.
