Providing Important Facts About Irregular Migration
If you are thinking about migrating or if you are already en route, The Migrant Project can offer you free, reliable and important information. We can tell you what the risks are before you start your journey, and what life is really like in common destination countries. We can also help you learn about legal migration options, training or business opportunities closer to home.
Reliable and trustworthy information on migration is very difficult to find. The media, smugglers, and even people from your community who have already migrated can give a false impression of the journey and life in a new country. Smugglers will lie to make a profit. And what was true for a migrants before may be out of date today – laws in destination countries change, and routes can become more dangerous.
Our local counsellors can provide you with facts and reliable information if you are considering migration or already on the move. This includes talking in person or over the phone, where our staff can answer your questions. These conversations are always confidential. We also offer information online through our Facebook page. Or look out for our local events in your community before making any final decisions about migration.
The Migrant Project aims to provide accurate and complete information on irregular migration, thereby enabling migrants and potential migrants to make informed decisions. We provide facts and current news on migration in multiple languages, for those at home or on the journey.
We use channels that are easiest to access and most influential among likely migrant communities. That includes phone lines where migrants can talk to a counsellor in their own language; a website optimised for browsing on a smartphone; social media; and informational events hosted in local communities. The Migrant Project is active on the ground in Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Europe.
