During the “PROTECT AND SUPPORT – Strengthening reintegration process of (potential) trafficking victims and other vulnerable groups and individuals” project, eight specialized workshops were organized in five cities in cooperation with local non-governmental organizations and institutions. The project is implemented as part of the Global Program of German Development Cooperation “Migration for Development” (PME), which is implemented in Serbia by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH in cooperation with the Ministry of Labour, Employment, Veterans and Social Affairs.
The workshops were attended by 122 participants in total. The majority of participants were young persons, 57.38% (70). The rest of them were full adults, 57 female and 13 male. Two workshops had adults as the target group: one, parents of children who make up the Council of Parents, and the other, professionals from the field of social and health care and the National Employment Service.

Also, ASTRA’s brochure on services for THB (potential) victims. Leaflets for returnees and representatives of organizations and institutions created within the same project were also shared.
