PAYOKE, Belgium

Payoke, a pioneer in tackling trafficking since 1987, is one of the three government-recognized victim-support centers authorized by the Belgian government to assist victims of human trafficking, including victims of loverboy trafficking. The program it offers, lasting two to three years, is designed to support the victim from identification to the end of the judicial proceedings through:

  • residential care
  • legal and administrative support
  • information and training
  • psycho-social counselling
  • outpatient care
Payoke runs awareness-raising initiatives, campaigns and trainings encouraging involvement from governments, civil society and individuals to inspire action and help prevent slavery.
