In Vrnjačka Banja, 17 girls have received knowledge on the topic of trafficking in human beings and the skills necessary for conducting workshops over the past three days. In the coming period, they will become peer educators. In Bor, Pirot, Niš, Vlasotinac, Užice, Prijepolje, Kragujevac and Belgrade, they will conduct 40 workshops and impart knowledge to their peers.
Here's a little piece of a girls evaluation:
What did you like the most about the training?
- That I felt just as valuable as all the other women in the room, that everyone's opinion was respected, that all the concerns were answered, that we had the opportunity to pass on the knowledge to someone else, and also because it was emphasized the importance of taking care of ourselves as and about others.
What is the most important thing you learned in training?
- In addition to trafficking in human beings and all that it entails, the presence of the feminist current was very important to me, and I know that in the future I will with joy implement it in my life.
The atmosphere in training?
- Supporting, respectful, liberating, challenging.
Training for peer educators on human trafficking is part of the Women's NGO project in collaboration with institutions and Roma organizations against trafficking in human beings in Serbia.
