HERA: Preventing Trafficking with Women’s Entrepreneurship

We provide critical capital equipment to women led ventures to scale up to prevent dangerous migration. As a team of business people, we volunteer in Central and Eastern Europe so keep our overheads low and impact significant.

The Problem

The trafficking of young women migrants and refugees is on the rise with increased migration barriers in Europe and the US and high levels of youth unemployment.

The Solution

We provide grants in the form of critical equipment to women entrepreneurs to scale up and employ young women at risk of trafficking in their communities.
