“Planning The Journey” Stammtisch

Community outreach was planned and organized with the women and girls at the Song-Ba Empowerment Centre which was facilitated by Madam Humiamatu(Director for National Vocational Institute) The meeting was attended by 29 participants in all. The outreach was very interactive with every question which was asked by the participants being answered. The ladies were very happy about the engagement and the fact that they could ask their questions and get them answered.

We engaged the women and girls on the topics PLANNING THE JOURNEY. We also made them know that, is not that we don’t want them to migrate but it must be done in a safe way and through regular means. We also help them to plan their journey with the S.M.A.R.T goals for migration.

We also discuss how to measure the goals that will answer these questions:

  • How will I track my progress?
  • How much time do I need?
  • How much of a resource (time, money, energy) do I need?
  • What are some mini-goals I can set along the way?
