The Urban Center seeks to influence and shape a new generation of young and passionate leaders, who will be capable of taking responsibility for making a real difference to the situation in Moldova.
Meeting face to face with victims of human trafficking, BOL realized that the nightmare these people have faced in their lives could happen again if someone will not give them a helping hand. That’s why, in March 2009, BOL established a center for victims of trafficking and sexual exploitation. The name ‘House of Change’ reflects the alternatives provided for women in need of healing:
The purpose of this center is primarily to protect young girls from violence, exploitation and trafficking networks, along with help in developing a consistent and holistic character.
The target groups are victims of domestic violence and sexual exploitation, as well as people who suffer from loneliness and depression. At the same time, BOL aims to identify and develop the skills of gifted children. Arts festivals, exhibitions and fairs bring additional incentives to improve people’s self-esteem and hope for the future.
Recognizing the desperate situations faced by vulnerable groups of Moldovan society, BOL opened a humanitarian aid center with the aim of providing assistance to the most vulnerable and needy.
