News | Festival trafficked persons

On 3 May 2012, FairWork and CoMensha/La Strada Netherlands are organising together a festival for trafficked persons. The main goal of the festival is the provision of information and exchange of experience among the participants.

With over 100 participants from the target group and 50 children, the festival, which is organised every year since 2001, is always a big success. It includes different activities, such as yoga, trying world cuisine and dancing but the main goal is education. The participants can choose from a large number of workshop. The biggest interest is always for the workshop “My rights in the Netherlands”, where a lawyer explains what rights trafficked persons have and what services they are entitled to in the Netherlands. Other workshops this year include communication with the police, intercultural communication, service provision in the Netherlands and child care.
