Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
Today, there is so much refugee crisis happening every day. Most of us have stopped feeling anything. I have been using my voice intensely to advocate for refugees with the belief that refugees should have access to quality education, jobs, and entrepreneurial opportunities, not just handouts and aids.
It's all part of making a better world.
I believe in our world without refugees - a world where people are not confined to refugee camps for decades waiting for solutions. We have the solutions, it is only that our politicians don't care at all. I would like to see world leaders + other stakeholders including refugees sitting on the table to co-creating solutions. There should nothing for us without us.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by refugees, asylum seekers, migrants, and other marginalized communities.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Inclusive of refugees in policy and decision-making processes.
Hastening of access to solutions either in the country of asylum, thrid country, or back home.
Freedom of movement, access to quality education, jobs, businesses and entrepreneurial opportunities.
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
A decrease in the number of refugees and asylum seekers confine in camps, high enrollment of refugees children in schools, and an increase in the number of refugees in formal employment or businesses.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
