Princess is one of the IOM AVRR beneficiaries who returned in 2018. She used her reintegration assistance to set-up a micro-business. She is hardworking, a motivator, and willing to learn new things. She is also willing at all times to advise potential migrants.
Princess left in 2017 for Algeria with the aim of a better life. She decided to come back to Liberia due to the hardship and challenges she and other irregular migrants were going through in Algeria. She returned in 2018 with the assistance of IOM Niger.

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.
