Sierra Leone
Against the advice of a friend, Amadu decided to take the dangerous journey to Europe. He was sold by traffickers and imprisoned before he was rescued and returned home by IOM.
Amadu attended the Government Rokel Senior Secondary Schoo and now a petty trader. He has a friendly and helpful personality who enjoys assisting vulnerable 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.
