The June 2019 arrest of billionaire Jeffrey Epstein has brought the issue of human trafficking into the news again. It is a good time to talk about how to refer to the victims and survivors of this evil.
KADAV/WSF has developed and implemented a number of projects since its formation in 1999, right after the Marmara earthquake.
KADAV/WSF creates tools and facilities for economic and social empowerment that lead to power and liberation for structurally discriminated women. It acts in solidarity with women who have been confronted with natural disasters, especially those who lost close relatives, and assists women who are confronted with social pressure related to gender roles in their region.
Also, it builds networks to provide psychological and legal consultancy, secure residence, medical care, job training and employment and other social, cultural and economic needs. Through this, KADAV raises awareness in society to act in solidarity with women.
Furthermore, KADAV coordinates “Women’s Human Rights” seminars and activities with governmental and civil organizations in the Kocaeli region and cooperates with other women's organizations on common activities and campaigns.
