Who is YENNA?
YENNA is the International Organization for Migration’s (IOM) online learning platform on community engagement for the promotion of safe migration. It is designed to help you with creating better activities, and to increase the active participation of communities within.
The contents on this platform are not only for IOM staff. They are available – completely for free – to all organisations working on the promotion of safe migration, including NGOs, migrant associations, community-based organisations and other UN agencies.
Yenna also guides governments on how to work closely with youth and their communities to co-create effective information channels on safe migration and create local alternatives.
Awareness raising is a multidirectional process, with the target audience at the centre as an integral part of each step.
Yenna is powered by COMPASS, a global initiative, in partnership with 14 countries, designed to protect people on the move, combat human trafficking and smuggling, and support dignified return while promoting sustainable reintegration.
Finally, Yenna is not a standalone platform as it has strong links with Migrants as Messengers (a community of returnee migrants active in promoting safe migration) and Waka Well (IOM’s website for young people providing information on safe migration and local opportunities).

YENNA was developed under the EU – IOM Joint Initiative and is now funded by the Government of the Netherlands through the COMPASS initiative.
