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.

IRREGULAR MIGRATION

The idea is to have a wider coverage through radio sensitization on irregular migration awareness raising. Communities will be effectively and efficiently informed on irregular migration and alternatives to mitigate it as they are key players throough Kerewan and Farafenni community radios.
