Exchange on the realities of the western migration with the young people of the countries of the South in particular Africans :

Reduce the so psychic, moral and physical tragedies caused by the western migration on the youth of the said countries of the South and help the young people make an enlightened choice of immigration, to be better prepared to face the realities waiting for them and to start right from the beginning to gather tools for the process of their adaptation in the host society.

This is made through the sensitization based on testimonies, reports, projections of films and videos.
