Wimmigrants reflected by a symbol

About Our Logo

Our logo symbolises a Swift, a migratory bird in an elegant shape of a woman’s body. Swifts are known for their strength and endurance to fly extremely long distances with an unimaginable determination against all odds to reach their destination. Immigrant women are very much like Swifts and it does not matter where you come from, it only matters where you want to be.
