Over 5000 men and women have been trained as lay counselors preparing them to impact their communities on HIV/AIDS, child abuse, rape, domestic violence and human trafficking.   The Open Door has developed training materials and resources that are used to educate the wider community with a special focus on rural areas where development, social and health services are vastly inadequate. In 2014/15 in excess of 6000 learners viewed our training DVD on human trafficking alone.
