D’Antilles et D’Ailleurs (NGO)
I spent more than 10 years working with migrant women forced into prostitution I have a good knowledge of the discrimination that those women are facing in the hosting countries (Europe and Caribbean) as well as the condition of women during the migration path. I have been working also on violence and traumas mainly through non formal education methodologies as well as culture (dance and art). I have been working with second generation migrants facing identity issues: we used photo and storytelling in order to counterbalance the mainstream ideas concerning migrants and migration and we underline the added value of the cultural diversity.
