The Gambia
Amie is young entrepreneur who loves horticulture and nature. She frequents the women's horticultural garden in her community.
Amie spent two years in Libya before returning to The Gambia in January 2017. She has been engaged in petty trade and is one of the leading female returnees sensitizing young people across the country on irregular migration. She is eager to improve her public speaking skills under 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.
