Where We Work

Gambia

Since December 2018, COOPI has intervened in Gambia to assist returning migrants and in particular to take charge of the mental health and psycho-social well-being of those who have suffered violence along the Mediterranean route.

Irregular migration is a multidimensional and complex phenomenon, which also leads to countries being emptied of their human capital useful for local development. The main causes are the lack of employment and training opportunities; widespread poverty in rural areas, where agriculture is affected by climate change and socio-cultural factors and poor education and primary health services.

COOPI works to increase technical and vocational training and socio-professional integration of vulnerable young people, potential migrants and returning migrants. It offers psycho-social assistance to those who have suffered trauma; it conducts information campaigns on the risks associated with the choice of illegal migration and on possible alternatives for personal fulfilment locally.
