their dream was of a better life in europe. their return to gambia has put an end to all such aspirations. pecksniff. as you know she says are very you know one of the numbers in the world i don't want any were there no more than a more than a group of one hundred forty would be migrants all of whose journeys have gone badly wrong being repatriated find international n.g.o.s about it other than. five more and six more said one of the lawyers and even opening well i will see if i thought that would be awesome market i'm in development so it's just
a business. to do that i don't want to know the amount of the funding on. a live vase i'm quoted and made to be played a joke was that it doesn't have a high pleased that it had the self i love the life and i haven't then because and the only guy who lives in danger actually does he has excellent food and all of those things that i love that cannot be said out. imprisonment exploitation violence drowning at sea just a few of the hazards migrants face when trying to get to europe. and even for those who make it the reality of life as an unwelcome arrival can be far from ideal. in two thousand and seventeen over twenty seven hundred gambians gave up on their dreams either because they couldn't get beyond libya or because public hostility and increasingly tough immigration laws deterred them from trying to stay in the e.u.
they had no option but to come back and try to rebuild their lives. but with democracy beginning to function here again after years of autocracy and the economy also now showing signs of life some gambian return needs a rediscovering their faith in their homeland. the outskirts about jewel capital of the gambia. love would show. going to homosexuals in the most awful and karama first met in a libyan prison together they endured violence and privation and became close friends they also made each other a promise to one day one others who might be tempted to fun of the same path actually just get one life just like to be that we already know should get destroyed because the truth is very very hard on them the problem is that we take
between them to leave the problems to be officers who know they are not discouraging them from my exit in one way i discourage in them from working days but when it will let it go into someone's going to get out and you know because i experience that as a foreigner in living in a foreign calling to be with us nobody in day even dead nobody will identify you it was thrown over from a failed migrants have signed up with the association all of them volunteers preparing to join mystify and karama on a remarkable mission crisscrossing the country that aim is to discourage anyone who might be considering the perilous journey that's known to all here as the back way how people are going to see the mystery. it depends because like out of five minutes enjoying the advantage of just getting to know my friends i knew how to
farm and these who are suffering from don't want to see if one of the unfair but i was. just land. based. so i was sent on with or somehow being done to the last one though not just going to. jail. one buys it you know i mean i just don't think. one should be. mystified grew up pat and sarah kunda the eldest of six children. his family amassed large debts to help fund his attempted migration in the hope that most of her and ninety technician could find a good job in germany today this still paying a high price for the sacrifices they made going to be our own love of. his life these visits that season the kind of. money. despite his faith and the family's many problems his mother refuses to turn her
back on him i'm going to my access i think they have got one now what do i mean one of them would get us and they are going to let you know them. and would like a something i am that i did not just not something i do yeah like i do beginning she was still didn't mean like you have to go under for a job because this is not bringing anything for you underfunded it you know some of the family will have to i know it as you would you have to look for job yeah in order to help us yeah so what i used to dunwoodie you discuss the sea is an alaskan b.j. yeah because you know also trying to create a job what you do is for the users and i'm showing you how proud i do business yes . today most of karama dream is finally coming true on
a ferry heading across the mouth of the river gumbi to the country's northern shore . with them off fifteen volunteers from the association all former migrants like themselves after months of planning and trying to get financial backing for the trip and mood is upbeat i have yeah yeah i love it. you know i mean here's a look at ways for the local talent to take a day or interval the language of this is a moving city eggs all the news in jails and. blood gets past the singing ones. and i think. that's the most yeah i mean there's this you know that i'm not saying it is they're going and it's something that i just. can't take. food for five days that convoy will tour through areas where years of burnett most public see and unemployment up close people to take desperate measures. to gambia
is the smallest nation in west africa but it's been one of the largest contributors to the my current flow across the mediterranean. and there. was. the first stop to st michael's school and am going to one of the biggest in the northern territories . to raise awareness amongst students most often his team have written a play based on their own experiences. he. migration is a tradition going back decades a much traveled route to much. value going. public here but
my. living to go with what i thought was because it is one i would join in a deadly journey my brother the fathers of those of us that you're going to spend with this journey if you put it into business we can would you become a billionaire could do that but my agent told me that he will help me within two weeks then i'll be absolutely serving maybe. august i get some ice because most of those tickets will never tried it but we will keep sending you do you know how many friends and this is the topic eight thousand two hundred dollars in the number you didn't get and some of this is just gum downs our governors brought us. if you owed one as they always send you to but people after they got up to get them together we can. all who enjoy the drama. so i won. the course and although it is sort of fortunate here so unless
those of wanted to stay on track to benefit from it. later that afternoon the schools economics and social sciences teacher reinforces the message international my vision has become a very serious problem really we see many people living in africa and some somehow i think a particular now one important question for all of you is there anybody who has someone who was ever involved in this illegal migration. right here in the past i mean because the way yes they have and see them did work and they didn't even know. why do you have to move and it wasn't. you know if he got an issue and irresponsible migration got a job that would be. just they should we all johnson his dad you know so we said we
have a you got to get in you got your hands must be responsible you know this time son when i was to bend down on the ground walk to the development of our country never the less higher education is very expensive in the gambia and even for those who get it well paid professional jobs are extremely scarce aspiration and rhetoric have yet to be matched by opportunity once you says it dies then they need to see something tangible in the country they need to see. the government being responsible enough to was creating employment for youths they need to see into government response well enough towards this didn't move tasha to school years revenue would be able to study law study medicine study or decisions of education in the uk country you know some people no matter how you slice it does that once
they don't see these things in place they will leave. the same challenges are found throughout the country the convoy's next stop is s.-o. a small town with a population of around seven thousand. him mystified and his team plan to use a different kind of presentation based around a large open at projection screen. as elsewhere in the gambia people here get much of the news and information from social media but it's also the medium which spreads most of the myths about how easy it is to get to a better life in europe. the truth is that for the vast majority of migrants those minutes will turn sour margaret from north africa very often from britain for example here and correct. images like these will be very familiar to view as of western media but for many here it's the first time they've been seen.
