18 months march through the desert, 2 years in Lampedusa refugees camp, 4 years in spain on the streets, 3 years in italian on the streets and later 6 years in Austria working in a brothel, after which she was repatriated back to her home country. Before grace embarked on this tragic journey to Europe, she had a 3 year old daughter who could hardly recognise her when she came back after over 12 years. Throughout all these years, grace managed to gather nothing except a little box filled with clothes and an illness that cost her her life 3 years ago. During an awareness campaign some years ago in nigeria, i met grace and she shared her story with us.

Vulnerable people possess a very strong will to attain a better and secured future. They are ready to take the risk, to travel far away from home or change location in order to find a better future. Very often not only for themselves, but for younger and older family members. How can this strong desire to migrate at all cost be turned into resources to create that better life wherever they are now? How can your business and skills contribute in advancing the status of vulnerable people in your community but go beyond to reach millions around the world?
