An Outreach took place at the office of the Business Advisory Council (BAC) and the Ghana Enterprise Agency (GEA). This was to inform them about #MMN and to see how together we could define a smart way to identify what alternative opportunities for skills acquisition and entrepreneurship are available for the youth and how the youth can benefit from the BAC/GEA offices. The BAC/GEA officer assured and also used documents to prove the plans put in place to support the youth in Ghana. The officer explained the plan for the A – E meaning Apprenticeship to Entrepreneurship of which some youth are beneficiaries. #MMN is already in collaboration with them to work for the wellbeing of the youth in their local communities.

“Irregular Migration” Outreach By James #MMN Volta Region Coordinator

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.

Stammtisch on “Migration issues”




A stammtisch (roundtable discussion) was organized just for Assemblymen and women and other communities influencers from six (6) different communities from the Hohoe District Assembly to inform and train them on migration issues (regular/irregular migration) to Europe. The six (6) Assemblymen and women and the other influencers were all glad about #MMN’s focus on the youth and women for empowerment and the opportunities the youth can exploit in their own local communities without migrating to Europe.

“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?
