ANEEJ is working to engage the government at both national and sub-national level on pro-active steps in the implementation of regulatory measures relating to activities of foreign investors such as the Chinese and Indians to address injustice, inequality and lack of equity. On the issues of illegal migration, ANEEJ works with the government especially in the Niger Delta to provide vocational and entrepreneurship training and start-up finance and equipment to those that show interest in any vocation of their choice while also reuniting them with their families.
Under the Global Program component, ANEEJ participates at local and international fora to discuss, support resolutions and set agenda on human trafficking, migration, rules of engagement with illegal immigrants, resettlement and integration of trafficked persons/illegal immigrants into normal life. ANEEJ collaborates with the National Commission on Diaspora matters, NAPTIP, State Government Agencies (Task Force) Against illegal migration, Nigeria Immigration Services, NEMA and State Ministries of Women Affairs to drive migration and global programs. Some of ANEEJ’s work covers Policy work, research and advocacy, livelihood support, Psych-socio support, south-south cooperation.
