Somos Colmena is IOM’s virtual community on migration, this website offers resources that can help you make informed decisions about migration. You can also follow our content on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and TikTok.

Somos Colmena is the virtual complement of communication for development processes that seek to generate positive social change with young potential migrants, settled migrants and migrants in transit in Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Costa Rica and Panama.

C4D processes are characterized by developing participatory processes, gathering evidence on which to base their products and activities, and seeking measurable results. The results are measured in three dimensions: knowledge, attitudes and practices, through research conducted with the people who participate in the campaigns, before and after implementation.

Somos Colmena was born as part of the global IOM X project and is implemented within the framework of IOM’s Western Hemisphere Program, funded by the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM). For more information click here.
