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.
