(Im)migrant Voices

At easyRights we have been lucky to learn first hand from (im)migrants the unique challenges they face when newly arrived in a country.  Whilst many contacts asked to participate anonymously the people below have bravely allowed their stories to be shared so more can understand their experiences.

Experience of Learning English in Birmingham

Birmingham City Council and Adult Education Service are helping newly arrived people to learn English.  Three strong women migrants share with us their first steps and words in English. Congratulations to them for their hard work!

Samira and Amari's Stories

To protect the identities of individuals the videos below showcase fictionalised stories based on real life (im)migrant experiences understood through interviews conducted by the pilots.  Their purpose is to convey the challenges faced by (im)migrants in general and showcase how easyRights tools can provide support.
