My name is Simon and I’m 37 years old. My wife Munaya and I have three children. Our search for a better life took us from Ghana to Germany. But we couldn’t stay there. Back in our home country, we received some help to open two grocery stores. Now we can provide for our family.

Advice for returnees

First of all, my team listens to the questions and challenges which the returnees tell us about. Before the Covid-19 pandemic broke out we used to hold one-to-one meetings here in the centre, but now we mostly give advice remotely. People give us their details, then we ask them relevant questions and give them advice based on that, whether by phone or by Skype.
