Community Outreach

First visit to Vocational Training and Rehabilitation Institute at Biriwa, Central Region. The Central region coordinator introduced the project to the school authority and shortly after, Sabina was granted access to engage the students in the Social Media and migration training.

Sir. Agbleke and Mr. Sowah, the head of chaplaincy for the Vocational Training and Rehabilitation Institute at Biriwa made mention that some past students of the school were in Germany, Qatar, and Israel.  The school Administration was so excited because our engagement with the final year’s students might reduce the number of them who might intend to travel outside through the illegal means drastically.

Sabina the Local Coordinator for the Region took time to speak with the students of OYESS on Irregular Migration & Opportunites back home.

Stammtisch On “Migration Decisions”

The  Stammtisch was themed “Migration Decisions”, James asked his participants the following questions to help them understand the role of #MMN in their community:

Why do you want to migrate?
How do you imagine your life there?
What other choices do you have?

Stammtisch on Migration Decisions

This Stammtisch dealt with the topic of “Migration Decisions”. It was held at the Adzato Community Centre in the Anloga District of the Volta Region.

One of the participants confirmed that due to job unavailability or opportunity in the community, most of the youths are forced to leave the community to search for greener pastures. This has affected even the leaders and the community at large. Another reason for migration is the fact that there is no industrial activity in the area which could earn them a living.

Opportunities at home

Stammtisch I:

A round table discussion with youth, service development providers and community members on available opportunities. Engagement with youth development service providers to expose the communities on the available opportunities for youth available on their desk. Youth will be exposed to the opportunity available by the services providers.

Target Group: Community members and youth development service providers
