Agents of Change video

Immigrant women are critical development actors. They know best. They apply their own individual and community assets to improve their lives. NGOs that provide computer training and other services further enable them to bring these capacities to bear. Donors and policymakers assist by supporting projects that leverage the local initiative, creativity, and improvisation of immigrants and NGOs.

This video is adapted from an interview with Maria Garrido, the lead researcher on the immigrant women study. It’s part of the larger body of employability work.
