PIAM ONLUS—Progetto Integrazione Accoglienza Migranti — ‘Thousands of women and girls are being trafficked to Italy from Nigeria, into a life of forced prostitution. Abused and desperately vulnerable, they have a champion in Princess Okokon, who was herself trafficked from Nigeria in 1999. Okokon fled her captors, and, with her husband, Alberto, set up the NGO Piam Onlus. Together they have helped hundreds of women in Asti and Sicily to escape their traffickers, giving them refuge and support’ Guardian, 8 August 2016

Let Us Learn — ‘Let us Learn is a group of young migrants, who are proud to call the UK home. It is our ambition that all migrants should have the chance to contribute fully to British society.

We want to ensure our voices are heard by policy makers and by everyone in this country. We believe that if we all work together, we can create a united and fair society that benefits every one of us.’
