#iEMPATHY Market Sensitisation: Amplifying Women's Voices Against Irregular Migration at Trade-fair International Market

In a strategic move to promote safer migration choices, Denny Social Welfare Hub (DSWHUB) recently took the lead in a targeted awareness campaign at the vibrant Trade-fair International Market in Lagos. Central to The Migrant Project, this initiative, steered by the dedicated commitment of Mrs. Abosede Otukpe, the Executive Director of DSWHUB, focuses on "Amplifying Women’s Voice in Migration Decision Making."

During the campaign, Mrs. Otukpe illuminated the life-threatening consequences of irregular migration, underscoring the indispensable role that information plays in navigating these perilous choices. Government agencies actively engaged, collectively challenging mindsets and reshaping the narrative. The campaign, distinguished by the impactful hashtag #iEmpathy, serves as a resounding call to empower women and traders against the harsh realities of irregular migration and human trafficking.

Eyewitness accounts from Libya offered a poignant reminder of the urgent need for informed decision-making. Libya returnees lauded DSWHUB for its swift response, reinforcing the organization's dedication to nurturing communities that make safer migration choices. As we persist in our mission to empower communities against these pressing issues, anticipate more updates and stories of resilience.

We extend heartfelt appreciation to our esteemed stakeholders, including the National Orientation Agency, Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment Migrant Resource Centre, National Commission for Refugees, Migrants, and Internally Displaced Persons (NCFRMI), and the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP). Your collaboration was pivotal in fostering a holistic approach to addressing migration challenges.
