The image of Europe that exists in Africa doesn't resemble reality. Europe is seen as the continent of opportunities, richness and hospitality. Many people on the African continent dream of going to Europe, and some of them take the step. Once there, most of them can hardly make a living. After several years of struggle they realize that the opportunities to really make it in Europe are very limited. But failure is not an option, they must succeed. There is the pressure of family who often invested in the trip. They put all their hope on their success in Europe and are expecting a lot. In Africa it's difficult to openly discuss the negative sides of migration. Ignorance, suspicion and fear of losing face are predominant in the debate. This project wants to show the realities of life as an African migrant in Europe and inform potential new immigrants before they make the decision to travel to Europe.
