“Through partnership, we can shape the economic conditions that make migration a choice, rather than a necessity for future generations of transnational families.”
At the center of TIGRA’s strategy is the transnational community. We see that immigrants are choosing to live with a “foot in two worlds,” maintaining important relationships in both their old and new homes. Immigrants remit money, make countless calls, send care packages, donate during disasters and regularly visit their homeland. However, within the current moment in migration, there is much to be desired. The fruits of cross-cultural experience and exchange ought to have a much broader impact on the genuine development of migrant-sending communities.
TIGRA empowers transnational families to make their economic choices matter, coursing their money and resources into projects and businesses that benefit us all. We cultivate committed partnerships with the private sector and enjoin businesses to work with immigrant communities towards an exit strategy in massive out-migration. Through partnership, we can shape the economic conditions that make migration a choice, rather than a necessity for future generations of transnational families.
