Abstract

This study examined the perceived satisfaction and effectiveness of rehabilitation of victims of human trafficking in Nigeria. Survey design was adopted and two hundred and six participants were selected for the study using snowball sampling technique. The age range of the participants was between 19-32 years with mean of 21.6 years and standard deviation of 2 years. They were all females rescued from foreign countries and within the country. Perceived Benefit of Rehabilitation Programme Questionnaire (PRPQ) was developed and used to collect data. The findings revealed that most beneficiaries appreciated the provision of accommodation and feeding but believed that facilities available could be better. The beneficiaries did not condemn the psychological andemotional interventions provided but argued that it could be improved upon. It was concluded that recovery of human trafficking victims may require very rich programmes designed by different professionals such as social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, sociologists, medical personnel, legal professionals etc.
