Home » Projects » Advocacy promotion and campaigning » WINGS – Supporting Women survivors of trafficking through a Comprehensive Integration Programme

Promoting a multi-layered action addressing third-country-national women survivors of trafficking and developing the WINGS generic framework on survivor-centred social and economic inclusion.

Context

WINGS framework includes guidelines and methodologies for the development and application of gender- and context-specific support programmes for TCN women victims of trafficking (VoT), in particular a language course with integrated psychological support, personalized employment counselling and development of tailored internship offers. These elements will be specifically adapted to the particular needs and requirements of each trafficked woman involved in the local WINGS Comprehensive Integration Support Programme that will be implemented in Italy, Greece, Spain and Belgium. The language course will be designed in such a way that it is suitable for women with low educational level and will be particularly practical in order to help women VoT to acquire important, basic knowledge of the local culture and thus facilitate orientation and integration in host societies.  In order to effectively support employment, the language course and the ethno-psychological sessions will be complemented by individual employment counselling. With the help of tested methodologies, individual solutions and paths will be worked out, and tailored internship offers will be identified for the participating women. During the internships, women and employers will be accompanied and supported by psychologists and/or language experts in order to ensure the effective support to TCN women VoT.

Objectives

  • To stimulate local and transnational cooperation/sharing of experiences among local stakeholders/project partners regarding language training, psychological support and personalized employment counselling to TCN women VoT.
