The fact of loosing their children in the ocean immobilizes their lives, creates confusion, doubt in decision making, sadness, loss of interest or pleasure, decrease or lack of appetite, weight loss. Some of them have suicidal ideas related to death, there is a decrease in mood, hallucinations and delusions. There is preoccupation with sleep. *Healthcare, educational and social programs for orphans and widows. *Fight against illegal emigration with sensitization and awareness. * Development of sustainable alternatives to migration to show to the youth that it is still possible to earn a living with dignity and loyalty by supporting the projects of young returnees with trainings (management, sales, customer management, accounting etc..).

How the employee got involved and why

Since 2020, I help young people from the COFLEC training center to write their CV, find an internship or a job. We help them to develop their innovation skills. And also to change perspectives and realize that the wealth they are looking for in Spain is intrinsic and that they can create opportunities in their own country. In 2022, Fatou volunteer to share her strong skills as Field Sales Executive.

What work does the employee do for charity

The project is about Migrant Awareness and develop activities to stop clandestine emigration from Senegal. Me and Fatou support the organization called COFLEC -Collective of women for the fight against clandestine emigration in Senegal- . The perilous adventure without a future despite awareness campaigns is not fading away. On the contrary, it increases over the years. Hundreds of young Senegalese loose their lives each year in the Ocean trying to reach Spain.
