Proyecto ESPERANZA is the Religious Order of Adoratrices' response to the reality of trafficking in women in Spain. The organisation started working in 1999 in Madrid. Proyecto ESPERANZA’s general aim is to fight trafficking in women by means of protecting the victim's human rights and to condemn this current form of slavery.
The organisation works in the areas of Direct Intervention (Direct Assistance), by providing integral assistance to trafficked women (including accommodation/shelter, medical, psychological, social/employment and legal assistance) with a focus on defending and promoting women’s human rights. Proyecto ESPERANZA conducts programmes for awareness raising and education and is very active in national lobbying, advocacy and networking. The organisation also provides support on return of trafficked women.
Proyecto ESPERANZA publishes a number of materials and researches that are available at their website.
