What is TOLERANT?
“TOLERANT: TransnatiOnaL network for Employment integRAtion of womeN vicTims of trafficking” is a European project aiming to enhance the integration of third country national women victims of trafficking in the labour market in the host countries and the EU in general, through employment support.
The project is funded by the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF) of the European Union and will run for 2 years (January 2019 – December 2020).
Why is it necessary?
The need to implement TOLERANT project emerged from the fact that more than 16.000 victims of human trafficking were registered between 2013 and 2014, 95% of the victims being women and girls.
Following identification and meeting of the basic needs of victims of trafficking (accommodation, residence permit etc.), employment appeared to be the most important factor in the process of integration, enabling women to become financially independent and self-sufficient in the long-term.
How will TOLERANT succeed?
Through transnational cooperation and exchange on the integration of women VoT for sexual exploitation in the labour market
By promoting the access of women VoT for sexual exploitation to integrated and gender-specific services and consequently, supporting their access to employment
