International Centre for Protection and Promotion of Women's Rights “La Strada”
Since its foundation in March 2001, the NGO International Centre for Protection and Promotion of Women's rights “La Strada” is one of the leading actors within the Moldovan anti-trafficking community. A handful of defenders of women's rights in those initial times very soon gathered a staff of 16 persons and a team of 25 volunteers - all of them eager to combat trafficking in human beings and to offer professional and sustainable support.
At present - in its capacity of an NGO - La Strada undertakes preventive, assistance, and lobbying activities, aimed at ensuring the protection of rights and legal interests of vulnerable social groups at all levels - individual, legal and executive. For already a decade, the public information activities of La Strada Moldova are contributing to safe migration and prevention of trafficking in human beings, domestic violence and sexual exploitation of children for commercial purposes. Thus it succeeded to acquire the name of an active and professional NGO with a high reputation, recognised not only at the national level but also at the regional and international level. La Strada Moldova is a member of the National Committee on combating trafficking in human beings and a member of the Coordinating Committee on preventing and combating domestic violence. It is a founding member of the International La Strada Association, a member of ECPAT and GAATW and other international bodies in the area.See more
