Short description:
OTR has been operating since 1990 through intervention in prostitution and the trafficking of human beings for the purpose of sexual exploitation, with a particular focus on street prostitution of migrant women and minors, often victims of trafficking organised and managed by criminal organisations.
OTR intervenes in cases of discomfort and/or cases of risk stemming from prostitution, and therefore also addresses issues faced by Italian prostitutes (including drug addicts) and Italian and foreign transvestites and transsexuals. The association has also widened its fields of action to other and new issues such as forms of trafficking other than for the purpose of sexual exploitation, refugees and asylum seekers, women victims of violence, homeless and other forms of marginalization and poverty.
OTR develops structured activities and services directly addressed to the people affected by such forms of exclusion, with an approach based on the promotion and protection of individuals’ rights.
Simultaneously, OTR, from a local, national and trans-national perspective, contributes to the promotion of the policies in the field, to the elaboration of models of intervention, of professional profiles and of training curricula; it carries out research-intervention projects and issues a variety of publications.
