Be part of this special event with inspirational migrant women who are featured in this inspirational and educational book to help other migrants have success in the new country.

The book is a collection of 50 migrant women who started their life from scratch in the new country, the faced many challenges and adversities and they overcome their barriers achieving success. What success means to them? How did they find their life purpose? And how do they contribute for the world?

In a situation where migrants are misjudged and negatively perceived this book aims to inspire and inform migrants and readers all around the world how much value we bring into the new country

We also want to change the way the media covers migration in this country. We want to share positive stories and show migrant entrepreneurs as role models.

50 Inspirational Migrant Women is a book written in two parts, that promotes the freedom of expression of migrant women from all over the world, and brings their voices together. Stories that are not told cannot be heard. Here, we use our voices to tell the world that we exist, here and now. We are ready to explore the expanses of the Universe within and around ourselves.




Why this book is important now?

The current refugee crisis is now one of the biggest challenges in the world. Many believe the problem is simply too big and too complex to solve. But I come from Albania, the country of Mother Teresa who said, “If you can’t feed the whole world then start by feeding one person”. This is how my venture started with these fifty migrant and refugee women; to listen to their stories and to share their voices with the whole world. Their in-depth stories will serve to showcase their individual strengths in the face of daunting challenges and their collective experiences will inspire many others who are facing the same, or similar, challenges. The aim is to share their wisdom, their resilience and the lessons they learned on their life journey and the messages that they would like to share with other women.

The overall goal of this project therefore is to raise awareness about the compassion that we need to show collectively toward migrants and refugees, and especially to recognise the values and the power that such women can bring to the new countries.

We have always been passionate about working and supporting women, especially those who come from a challenging background. We founded the Migrant Women Association on 2015, and organised many events, including two successful conferences in central London called ‘Inspiring Migrant Women’ which also included the presentation of the “Migrant Woman of the Year award” – a recognition of migrant women who have overcome many challenges and helped their communities to integrate into British society (www.migrantwomantalks.com).

We have created a big network, and a team of colleagues who always support us in our projects and we are very grateful those who joined us on this mission.

A big thank you to Unlimited for supporting me to finance this book and encouraging me to make it happen.
