The Gambia
Mama is currently working with a laundering company. She is interested in awareness-raising efforts and is committed to sensitizing Gambians on tactics traffickers used to lure girls into human trafficking.
Mama John is a survivor of human trafficking. She was trafficked in June 2016 after being promised a decent job abroad and returned to The Gambia in July 2017. Mama and her fellow trafficking survivors have embarked on a series of sensitization activities across the country to raise awareness about human trafficking by narrating their ordeals to potential victims.

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.
