The Gambia
Referring to himself as a hardworking gentleman, Almamo likes making friends and hanging out. He loves listening to Senegambian music and watching action movies.
Almamo returned to The Gambia in 2017 and has since been farming with his dad in his home village and runs a grocery shop. Though he has limited experience in awareness-raising campaigns, he is eager to learn innovative approaches to sharing his experiences with other young Gambians through MaM.

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.
