T-Zen: Platforms for access to information, guidance, and intercultural content for migrants
By Marckenson Jn Baptiste - Project Leader
Front of the humanitarian crisis in Haiti, that cause most of Haitian people begin to migrate to United State, Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Dominican Republic, and others; our platform T-Zen decide to actualize our information to help Haitian people to have access to get good info. Between the actions, we can mention:
T-Zen App: Before the application was only available for Android, now IOS (Iphone) users can download it (https://apps.apple.com/es/app/t-zen/id1596886769?uo=4 ) . In addition, migrants, refugees and tourists from Haiti can get guidance information for countries like the United States, Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Canada and the Dominican Republic.
T-Zen Website « T-zen – Multimedia Platform for Haitians in Chile (tzen.cl) » Before 2023, the platform served only Haitian migrants, refugees and tourists in Chile. Today, the vision of the platform is broadened; Knowing that migrants, refugees, and tourists come from Haiti, they can get orientation information for countries like the United States, Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Canada, and the Dominican Republic.
“Byen Vwayaje” (Have a Good Trip): Faced with the exodus of Haitian migrants in Chile who decided to cross several borders to reach the United States irregularly; under the theme “Lavi w konsene nou. Vwayaje an sekirite epi enfome se dwa ou” (Your life matters to us, traveling safely, getting information is your duty). Under the auspices of the Embassy of the United States in Chile, between November 2022 and March 2023, we have carried out a program to “Travel legally to the United States. This program contained dissemination of relative information that comes from the embassy, podcast, live Facebook and YouTube, poster publication and content on the T-Zen App. The contents were normally: avoid trafficking and treatment of migrants, how to get a visa for the United States, type of visa, etc.
