Sierra Leone
Haja was influenced by her peers to travel to Oman. Her family raised the funds for her journey. Her family was not informed of the true nature of the trip and was sold to multiple households where she worked without any pay. Her traffickers eventually put her up for deportation after she fell ill.
Haja attended the Fadugu Agricultural Secondary School in Fadugu. She currently engages in business and believes in honesty with empathy towards 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.
