IOM conducts trainings about counter-trafficking awareness and prevention and about protection from sexual exploitation and abuse, protection from gender balance violence, how to work with clients and intercultural communication for frontline workers, professionals, employees and volunteers active in assistance to people from Ukraine.
In addition to counselling and capacity building, IOM helps displaced youth from Ukraine cope with different situations they experience in their daily life. From mid-May at the Gabčíkovo Accommodation Facility, IOM conducts community workshops and youth entitled them Mood Workshops. They are their co-creators and can propose topics of workshops that build cooperation, respect, tolerance and overcome stereotypes as well.
To reduce the risk of human trafficking, IOM has also developed a mobile app SAFE Travel & Work Abroad that provides key information about human trafficking, safe travelling principles, advice on seeking employment abroad and a list of emergency contacts.
