About Me

Since its foundation in1998, IROKO's mission is to create and reinforce a culture of human rights and to support solidarity between diverse peoples, cultures and life experiences. IROKO fights against every form of exclusion and marginalization, against racism and xenophobia.
IROKO promotes dignified living conditions for all and operates to protect and improve the conditions of life of socially disadvantaged persons, both immigrants and non, suffering from strong social and economic disadvantages.
IROKO fights to eliminate all forms of violence against women and children, with special attention to the elimination of the trafficking and exploitation of women and children in prostitution and in other areas.
The main activities are:

  • Shelters for the victims of trafficking and violence
  • Temporary economic assistance immediately after escaping from their exploiters
  • Assistance in the search for employment and housing for the victims of trafficking in their search for economic independence and personal autonomy
  • Psychological support and ethno-clinical Cultural Mediation for the victims in need of special sustenance
  • Cultural mediation and accompaniment of the victims and other immigrants to social and health services
  • Specialised medical assistance, in collaboration with volunteer doctors and medical specialists
  • Legal consultancy and information on immigration issues, residence permits and visas, and on civil and penal rights
  • Translation of documents for use in employment search and in applying for training courses and for all purposes permitted by law

Iroko has 2 apartments where it also offers emergency, short-term accommodation to women and children in need. It also has a temporary economic assistance programme for victims of trafficking. This sustenance and accompaniment is carried out by agreeing with them a program of activities, services and training courses, which would assist them in the search for employment and housing.
