Hawa
Sierra Leone
A friend informed Hawa about opportunities in Kuwait and connected her to a lady who happens to be a trafficker. Her mother borrowed money to pay for her journey. Upon arrival in Kuwait, she worked and cleaned multiple houses, and she was not provided medical care when she fell ill.
Hawa attended the Alhaji Vocational Islamic Secondary School in Bombali where she completed high school education. She is pursuing a course on computing. Hawa is a person of empathy towards people and advocates for social justice.

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.
