The Nigerian Women Association Verona (NWAV) is a voluntary association based in Verona, Italy, that has been actively involved in the Eyefon project in Nigeria. NWAV is a non-profit organization that aims to promote the welfare and development of Nigerian women and children in Italy and Nigeria.
NWAV has been working in collaboration with the NGOs (Non Governative Organizations) and other stakeholders to support the Eyefon project by raising awareness about the dangers of irregular migration and encouraging legal migration among Nigerians. They have also been involved in community outreach programs to educate women and children about the risks associated with irregular migration and how to avoid falling prey to traffickers and smugglers.
In addition, NWAV has been providing support to Nigerian migrants who have been repatriated back to Nigeria as a result of irregular migration. They have been working to reintegrate these migrants into Nigerian society by providing them with vocational training, education, and other forms of support to help them rebuild their lives.
NWAV has also been advocating for the rights of Nigerian migrants in Italy and working to promote greater cooperation between Italian and Nigerian authorities in combating irregular migration. They have been working to ensure that Nigerian migrants in Italy are treated fairly and that their rights are respected and protected.
The involvement of NWAV in the Eyefon project has been critical in raising awareness about the dangers of irregular migration among Nigerian women and children. Their contributions have helped to reduce the number of Nigerians who are lured into irregular migration, and have also helped to improve the welfare of those who have been repatriated back to Nigeria.
I would like to express my gratitude to all those who have contributed to the success of the EYEFON project in Lagos. It is heartwarming to see the dedication and hard work of the NGOs in Lagos (Non Governative Organizations), the parents who have become protectors of their children against traffickers, the NWA team of Lagos, SW Abosede Mary Otukpe, Ajara Awodi, Mrs Funmilola Lateef, and our logistics volunteer, Osazuwa Kennedy.
I would also like to extend my thanks to the NWA team in Verona, Association Papa Giovanni 23rd, the project leader, and the entire NWA Italy team for their outstanding work on this project. Special thanks to Prof. Michele Bertani and SW Ajibola Oluwakemi Victoria for their support.
Last but not least, I want to give a special thank you to the Italian Ministry of the Interior for financing the EYEFON project for three years. Your support has been crucial in making this project a success.
