Our international work is divided into six themes: Anti-Trafficking, Clean Water, Emergency Response, Food Security, Gender Justice and Income Generation.

We work alongside communities to support local projects in each of these areas. We are also responsible for overseeing the transfer of funds for the UK’s Mission Support Allocation (money donated through the annual Self-Denial Appeal).

We support a number of Anti-Trafficking projects such as skills training for vulnerable young people in Ukraine, children’s recovery centres in Malawi and Tanzania, and awareness-raising in Russia. Through prevention, protection and partnership, The Salvation Army is working to bring human trafficking to an end.

Current projects

Community awareness and recovery (CAR), Nigeria

Across four states in Nigeria, The Salvation Army’s innovative community awareness and recovery (CAR) project aims to transform community attitudes and behaviours around human trafficking. It provides support survivors to reintegrate them into their home communities and overcome their experiences.

Survivors of trafficking who are referred to the project receive care and accommodation with specially trained host families, and are linked up to long-term community reintegration and support programmes run through Salvation Army churches and centres. More than 70 Salvation Army personnel, across ten corps have received training to support survivors.

International Development - Life skills
Life Skills Training, Ukraine

Life Skills Training, Ukraine

In Ukraine, teenage orphans leave institutional care with limited skills and opportunities, making them vulnerable to being trafficked. The Salvation Army is providing life skills as part of a programme which helps them to live independently and reduces their vulnerability to trafficking. 25 young people are currently taking part in the programme which includes cooking classes, computer skills, self-care lessons and anti-trafficking awareness.
