The Gambia - Abdoulie

La Gambie
Born in 1995, Abdoulie is currenly in Jarra Tonoataba engaged in farming and poultry.
Abdoulie left The Gambia in 2015 with the expectation of reaching Italy a year later. Unfortunately, he got stranded in Libya and went through a difficult ordeal in detention. He came back to The Gambia in 2017 and has since been involved in migration awareness raising activities.

Returned migrants play a central role as Volunteers in the development, planning and implementation of the Migrants as Messengers campaign.

Through their stories, the learnings from their migratory experiences and their creativity, MaM Volunteers are the principal authors and actors of the campaign. From 2019-2022, a community of more than 300 volunteers across 7 countries will develop and grow. This community will also have access to diversified training and capacity-building opportunities and be invited to regular activities to support the development of an organic and sustainable community. Female engagement plays an important role within the MaM Volunteer community as they will take the lead in shaping women-to-women dialogue sessions and engaging female audiences more generally.
