On the 2nd December 2021, An Outreach was organized at Adidome Farm Institute to inform and educate the people about migration issues and discourage Irregular Migration and promote livelihood as a positive alternative to the constraints about jobs, skills, and against poverty among the youth. The Farm Institute trained the youth in Agribusiness and as our main reason, we tried to work with the Senior Administrator to best support the youth in the communities. Senior officer and lecturer in the Institute said he and his colleagues are ready to work with #MMN. He said when the youth are ready, they can even come and train, mentor, and support them in any other way.
The activities of the Migrant Media Network are to ensure that the potential Migrants/refugees, and Migrants in Transit are made aware of the safer options to migrate to Europe. Sabina Abuga (local coordinator) organized the Stammtisch for the Youth of Alata Jaga in the Central Region. Mr. Kofi spoke to their leader, who gave the team permission to have the discussion with his colleagues. The group leader Frank introduced the team and gave permission to carry on with activities for the day.
The team discussed the topic of the day, “Plan Before You Pack” with emphasis on the risk associated with irregular migration.
