We are proud to introduce our project team, especially the new members who joined us to empower Venezuelan migrants and refugees through personal brand and entrepreneurship workshops, administrative assistance and support for migration status regularization. Since the beginning we knew that it was necessary to combine AGTR's experience with the knowledge and skills of experts in migration processes.
Three Venezuelan professionals, who migrated themselves to Peru because of the social and economic crisis in their country, are now part of our team: Andreína is a lawyer specialized in labor rights, Martha is an expert in migration regulation and administrative processes in Peru and Loredana is a psychologist specialized in helping children and adolescents overcome traumas due to migration. We can also count on a team of Venezuelan volunteers, whose commitment allows carrying out all the activities and programs included in this great initiative.
This month we launched the subsidies program to help extremely vulnerable migrants and refugees face the administrative expenses for the regularization of their migratory status in Peru (a long and expensive process). We soon realized this program is even more necessary than we anticipated, as it is the first step towards formal and decent employment. We will soon share with you stories and results from the field! As always, none of this would be possible without your support. Your donations make it possible to increase the impact of the project and improve people's lives. Thank you!
Sincerely, Andrea Gandolfi
