The Gambia
Kaddy states cooking and listening to music as her passions. She looks forward to furthering her education in construction and hopefully picking up a lucrative job in a construction company.
Kaddy was pursuing her diploma in construction at the Gambia Technical Training Institute (GTTI) when she left abroad. It did not take too long before she realized that she fell for a fake job and that she had made a bad decision. After facing maltreatment at the hands of her employers, she returned home in August 2017. After returning, she went back to GTTI and completed her diploma course in construction.

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.
