#MMN Community Outreach

 

 

 

On the 24th day of September, 2021, the Migrant Media Network #MMN Volta  organised an outreach in collaboration with an NGO “Christ Love Children” from Oyibi – Accra. The NGO supports street children, schools, churches and communities. The NGO shared some bible and life lessons with the community and also shared educational materials to the Basic Schools and children in the community. As Child trafficking is rampant it the region, the #MMN Team trained the children & parents in  mitigating  lies told by human traffickers and ways to verify misinformation and fake news this helped in educating  the communities and get them to understand the concept of irregular migration’s risks and dangers people may not be aware of.

Stammtisch Migration Decision

 

 

 

The Stammtisch was on the Topic “Migration Decision” it was held on Tuesday 20th July 2021 at KOSSI’s Fashion centre  in the Anloga  district in the volta Region. The Stammtisch was organised to encourage the youths (young women and men) to take the Skills acquisition seriously and to be insightful of what they are learning. And to take SMART Decision concerning migration, while discouranging the irregular migration option. From the #defyhatenow’ field-guide topic (migration Decision) the participants were openly interactive with answers to question as most of them have some experiences about dangers/risks involved from narratives. James introduced the #MMN_ussd code and the THINK Carefully MOVE SAFELY GAME as well.

 

Workshop and Books Donation

 

 

On Saturday 24th July, 2021, a request  made from the Hong Kong citizens, (In House Residents) working with at  Sunon Asogli  Energy Power Plant Ghana Limited  at Kpone – Tema. The team donated books, 1 laptop and 1 iPad to the Salo JHS in the Anlo District. The initiative was a requested by James J. Oboade, #MMN local co-ordinator for the Volta and Accra, and was solicited by Nana Ofei Asamani who is the partner and consultant to Sunon Asogli  Energy Power Plant Ghana limited. This proved that #MMN’s presence in the community has something to do with supporting the local communities to develop perception for change.

We also aim for searching and collaborating with more other individuals and companies to support the local communities as well. As LC for #MMN I also used the occasion to introduce the USSD code to the population for their migration choices.
