What’s Next?

We hope to  leverage the insights gained from this forum to drive impactful initiatives. According to research, Women face more challenges in accessing employment and training opportunities, as well as health care services, often  following abuses  and exploitation during their migration journey. We are canvassing for initiatives that will Foster the integration of women into their new environment. further more, the rights of migrants, especially women should be protected.
