Take a look at this reintegration project in Guinea Bissau for migrants returning from Niger and local community members. Supporting the reintegration of migrants in their countries of origin is essential in order to ensure the sustainability of returns.
Reintegration projects help migrants rebuild their social, professional and personal networks that they may have lost during their migratory journeys. These projects also support community members in countries of origin in order to prevent future risky departures and to strengthen the community development mechanisms.
All of the migrants assisted by IOM with voluntary return from Niger are eligible for the reintegration programme. The EU-IOM reintegration projects in countries of origin are funded by the European Union under the Migrant Resource and Response Mechanism (MRRM).
