Safe Home for Migrants Association (SaHMA)
SaHMA is a women-led non-profit organization that seeks to address irregular migration and human trafficking through capacity building, advocacy, empowerment and reintegration.
Our strategy is to identify issues that hinder progress in stopping the trafficking of persons particularly young people from The Gambia. This includes identifying issues such as limited awareness of youth and their parents on what is trafficking, inadequate legal action to ensure the proper address of victims of trafficking and inadequate employment opportunities available for young people in The Gambia.
- We organize community outreach, school outreach and radio talk shows and awareness-raising activities on irregular migration, especially on human trafficking.
- We support our fellow migrants to be socially reintegrated and advocate for psychosocial support.
- We build the capacity of women in entrepreneurship and program management to help sustainably increase their economic earnings.
- We raise awareness of the stigma and discrimination that returned migrants and women face.
