The world is on the move, with millions of people migrating every year. Many of these people are facing the harsh realities of what migration means in the 21st century, facing multiple risks along the way.
For many migrants, it can be hard to access reliable and trustworthy information. For example, stories in the media can be one-dimensional, while information provided by smugglers and human traffickers is often misleading and does not accurately portray the realities.
The Migrant Project aims to fill this void. We provide facts and current news on migration in multiple languages that is easily understandable and accessible to migrants, both at home and during their journey.
Our mission is to help migrants understand the risks they might face during their migration journey and the realities of life in their destination country, and to help them make more informed decisions about their options. This includes providing information about alternative opportunities – whether in home countries or the region.
The Migrant Project is active in South Asia, the Middle East, East Africa and West Africa. On the ground in these regions, our local counsellors provide facts and reliable information to people considering migration. This includes communication in person and over the phone, where our staff answer migration-related questions. These sessions are always confidential. We also communicate with migrants online through our Facebook pages and organize events in local communities.
The Migrant Project is funded by national governments, international organizations, NGOs and charitable foundations as an initiative of Seefar.
Call one of our local counsellors or send us an email if you would like more information and facts about migration. You can also follow us on Facebook.
