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.

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.

Stammtisch on Human Trafficking

Some Community members of Aworowa Abaase Community received a training on truthful story telling.
Talking about human trafficking and engaging the participants in awareness of human trafficking and the dangers to human life. Also a brief engagement in opportunities in Ghana was further discussed.
