Liberia
Nataline is one of the IOM AVRR beneficiaries who returned to Liberia in 2019. She was convinced by her boyfriend to make the risky journey to Algeria through Mali. She is determined and willing to learn new things.
Nataline is an interior designer and a classroom teacher. She is a single mother and an entrepreneur.

She left Liberia in 2018 and traveled to Algeria to work and support her family home. Because of the unfavorable situation in Algeria, she decided to come back to Liberia with the assistance of IOM. She is willing to share her journey experience with other young people.

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.
