All NFAs & GWI have to or should contend with refugees and/or migrants, especially women & children
Panel shared examples of how women's leadership enhances access to dignity, safety and human rights for refugees and migrants. Be it from been a former refugee form originally Ruwanda, living 17 years in a camp in Kenya adn now living in Michigan USA. Or a journalist making a documentary on how 'refugees' are treaty in the camps/ at the borders (Morroco/Spain) made in North Africa who are trying to reach Europe mainly for economic reasons. These particular 'refugees' should be helped at home, climate control measures to fight drought and create jobs in the homelands and ofcourse educate all so that they (men, women & children) can support them selves in their home countries.
Create awarness etc and continue the work we already do.
