Sierra Leone
Dauda intended to reach Europe but got stocked in Mali doing odd jobs to raise money to survive and continue his journey. He was constantly being harassed by the Malian authorities and decided to return home.
Dauda attended the Albert Academy Secondary School in Freetown, where he attained a high school education. He engages in community advocacies on peace-building and is now a businessman. Dauda adopts a friendly approach in engaging with young people and has excellent organizational skills.

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.
