Free2Link brings together organizations active in the field of immigration and asylum, integration programs and support for victims of trafficking in Italy and Greece. It also aims at strengthening the capacities of “frontline” personnel, as well as public and private networks, on the early identification of victims of human trafficking through the Internet and other digital means (e-trafficking).

Free2Link is implemented with the co-financing of the European Program “Rights, Equality and Citizenship” (2014-2020) of the European Union and is the result of the cooperation between Cooperativa Sociale Progetto Tenda onlus (Italy), Danish Refugee Council Greece, LABC srl (Italy) and CWEP (Poland).
