It all started with Susan, a young woman from Nigeria. Her story begins similarly to that of Joana, which was shared in our last blog entry. Back in her home village in Nigeria, Susan met a woman called Ivy, who offered her a well-paid job in Europe. Dreaming of a better future for herself, Susan seized the opportunity to start a new life. However, upon arrival in Italy she was immediately taken to a refugee centre as she had no valid papers on her and was supposed to be deported back to Nigeria
How do women affected by human trafficking get to Austria? Why do they even get involved in all of this in the first place? Why don't they just run away? We receive many questions about our trainees and have noticed that there is still a lot of prejudice and a lot of misconceptions about forced prostitution in our society. Therefore, we would like to share Joana's story here. In the hope of studying in Europe, she was caught by human traffickers and forced into prostitution in Austria.
