The Gambia
Alagie believes in honesty and hardwork and enjoys spending time with his family when he is not working.
Alagie spent at least two years in the Libya and returned to The Gambia in 2017. He was previously doing masonry and now works at the poultry farm of Gambia Returnees from the Backway (GRB). After participating in numerous awareness raising campaigns, he joined MaM because he believes he can use his experiences to raise awareness on irregular migration.

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.
