Through Kojo’s Eyes: Aspirations of a Young Ghanaian Migrant

By Collins Yeboah, IOM Ghana

“Welcome bro! Great to have you back! I trust you had a good flight?”

This is how I welcomed Kojo at Kotoka International Airport, in Accra on 27 July 2017. Kojo, 24, had just returned to Ghana from Libya, on a charter flight organized by the International Organization for Migration (IOM). He looked exhausted, lost. But there was also a sparkle of relief in his eyes.
