About Our Beneficiaries
Your entry fee will benefit The A21 Campaign. Money donated to The A21 Campaign provides crucial funds for addressing the issue of human trafficking in Europe. They are committed to ensuring that the funds we have been entrusted with are used effectively to fight trafficking.
The A21 Project Centers require funds to cover outreaches to the most vulnerable and at-risk communities as well as hygiene and support packs to trafficked victims in Detention Centres. They also fund A21′s ability to assist victims through relationships with Law Enforcement Agencies, hospitals, and other organizations, in order to assist in cases of suspected trafficking. These Project Centers also distribute awareness posters, brochures, and deliver our prevention programs that sends teams into the most at-risk areas of Eastern Europe to warn and equip young women so they do not become one of the statistics. The average cost of a prevention trip to warn 1,500 students is 1,000 USD.
Their Crisis Care Shelter provides basic essentials such as housing, clothes, toiletries, beds, food, and access to medical care, psychological care, recreational activities, language training, life guidance, legal assistance, and repatriation assistance for victims of human trafficking. The average cost of providing this kind of care for survivors is 120 USD per day, per survivor.
Their Transition Program provides survivors with housing, living expenses, and access to ongoing medical care, as well as access to counseling from social workers and psychologists. We also provide educational scholarships, vocational training, and employment assistance. The approximate cost of supporting one survivor in this way is 3,000 USD per year.
Their legal office provides legal advice, legal services, and court representation to the survivors in our care. When required, we provide witness protection services as well. The cost of court fees to take a trafficker to court in Greece is approximately 2,200 USD. This does not include the cost of witness protection, legal representation, or additional court fees if the trafficker chooses to appeal the decision.
The A21 Campaign in Australia, USA, and UK utilizes funds to raise awareness and financial support for our work. They also provide administrative and office support for our work in Greece and Ukraine. The vast majority of our team are volunteers, and so administrative costs are kept to a minimum.
Every person currently trapped in a trafficked situation should have a way out, and every trafficker should be prosecuted. While the financial cost of bringing freedom in Europe may be high, that does not mean we can forget about the women trapped in this part of the world. Their freedom is worth investing in!
With existing resources, The A21 Campaign can only assist a fraction of the people who currently need to find freedom. Their vision is to provide assistance to every single trafficking victim who needs help. It is only by your support that this goal can become a reality.
