The mission of the ROMILDAMOR Foundation is to turn exploited survivors of human trafficking and gender based violence into empowered women with access to meaningful employment.
With a global average of 50 million victims of Human Trafficking, the ROMILDAMOR Foundation was founded in 2018 to provide support to women & girls who have been victimised by this socially unjust practice.
The demand for legal representation and holistic support for survivors of exploitation and gender based violence has inevitably grown, as many are seeking asylum in the UK and the US.
Our overall aim is to further the anti-trafficking mission, whilst advancing provision of Restitution, Empowerment & Reintegration opportunities to survivors.
We work to enable survivors of Human Trafficking and Gender Based Violence to have access to:
1. Career Development : Provision of employment and volunteer opportunities will enable survivors to build a career and secure a legitimate income. This helps to break the cycle of financial instability, enabling our clients to reintegrate back into society.
2. Academic Development : ROMILDAMOR works in partnership with CityLit and Headstart Tutoring to provide free ESOL courses to our clients and English language practice sessions also. Our clients also have the opportunity to enroll unto additional courses of their interest. We encourage this in conjunction with our Career Development opportunities as they both work so well hand in hand. Knowledge is power and it provides a gateway of establishment and advancement for these women & girls.
3. Legal Support; Survivors of Human Trafficking and GBV have very limited access to legal advice and support. It is therefore a priority for ROMILDAMOR to ensure that the survivors who join the Capacity Building Programme are given the opportunity to access Pro Bono Legal Advice services. These services operate through our partnerships with Pro Bono Organisations and specialist Lawyers who provide survivors with representation on cases in Immigration, Civil, Housing, Family and Employment law.
4. Therapy Support : The mental health and wellbeing of survivors is so crucial. Depression, anxiety, PTSD, self harm and attempted suicide are common mental health issues that victims face.This is why ROMILDAMOR deems it highly essential to put together therapy and counselling support.
We will be working with experts who will continually provide therapy sessions to all survivors on our Restitution Programme
