We want to quickly take you back to show you what we have been into for a while and how we are contributing to the fight against irregular migration.
Sensitization and Advocacy
The Centre took off in 2018 with a sensitization event on the “Dangers of Irregular Migration”. The plans are to continue and expand the scope and reach of the sensitization in 2019 by collaborating with more organizations and by taking it to the schools and other public places where most of the prospective migrants are located. The report of this event can be downloaded here.
