The UNVTF-funded project, Asti Contro La Tratta – Asti against Trafficking (A.C.T), targets mass asylum seekers crossing the Mediterranean. The project provides integrated assistance to victims of trafficking aged between 16-23 years in the first 60 days upon their arrival in Italy, or in the limbo period while awaiting the status of asylum applications. Basic necessities are provided to beneficiaries including legal and medical assistance, cultural services, sex education and parenting courses. Female beneficiaries are provided with a stipend to autonomously purchase necessities for their personal hygiene.
