According to Mrs. Florentine DJIRO, President of REALIC, the aim of this activity was to highlight the impact of radio in the fight against illegal immigration on the ground. For her, the aim was to show and strengthen the role of radio in awareness-raising campaigns aimed at pupils and students on the risks linked to illegal immigration, and to popularise reliable information and legal channels concerning the immigration chosen.

It should be noted that this programme saw the participation of Mrs. Diénéba DOUMBIA, Director of the Peace Research Department of the FHB Foundation and Mr. Ousmane KANTÉ, Editor-in-Chief of Radio de la Paix.

The participants suggested radio programs that focus on accurate information about immigration and made a commitment to raise awareness among other young people about the risks associated with this scourge. It should be recalled that REALIC is a non-governmental organization (NGO) created in 2017 in Daloa to contribute to the resolution of the problems undermining Ivorian youth. Several prevention and awareness-raising activities have been carried out by this NGO to curb the migratory flows of young people in search of the Eldorado.
