I am a woman

Knowledge is Power!
Enables young people to make informed decisions about their futures, at home and abroad. The WAKA Well website makes it easier for young people, their families and communities to learn about regular migration procedures, available local opportunities to work, train or study and who to speak to in person for guidance.
