We are proud that Migrant Leaders was mentioned in The Guardian as an example of a charity that is making a difference by working to inspire disadvantaged young migrants to broaden their horizons and fulfil their potential.
The article brings valuable insights on why and how employers can create a workplace where everyone can thrive and the importance of this to young talent. Our Founder & CEO Elham Fardad would like to give a shout out to our very own Jouja Maamri who is a member of the Migrant Leaders Executive Team, “Jouja is one of the very talented young people I am lucky enough to be working with, who has put her personal purpose at the centre of her work and career aspirations right from the start. She and so many others give me hope that together we can build a world and a future that offers everyone more hope than we had in the past.” Migrant Leaders Founder & CEO, Elham Fardad.

Migrant Leaders has launched its long planned Migrant Leaders Opportunity Fund to enable exceptional migrant students to attend top universities. Our talented migrant students often find themselves in a situation where, despite gaining offers to study at top universities, they may not be entitled to student funding. This sometimes comes as a shock to them as many have been here for years and made Britain their home. Israel Johnson, Migrant Leaders Mentee and one of the recipients of the fund says “My story began when I moved to the UK in 2010 with my family when we sought safety from the violence of Boko Haram in Nigeria. I want to dedicate my life to the field of science but am ineligible for student finance, Migrant Leaders is giving me that opportunity by paying for my tuition fees to study Biomedical Science at the University of Warwick.”
