The program in details
Village Focus International has been taking in young women victims of violence and human trafficking for several years. Very often, young women are torn away from their families and end up as prostitutes thousands of kilometers away from their native village. VFI, and Solibad since 2017, help these young women regain their dignity and psychological reconstruction after major traumas. Badminton is offered in sessions from time to time with our Australian coordinator, who is also a badminton coach, as a leisure activity to forget their past.
