    An immigrant is someone who takes refuge in another country either willingly or unwillingly for legitimate reasons ranging from the wish to change environment, displacement by war, escape from natural disaster, escape from bad governance, search for employment, and so on.

    This is usually a challenge for both the immigrant and the host country especially as there will be increased pressure on basic amenities, employment opportunities, as well as increase in crime rate and other degrees of unevenness resulting from the increased population. There will also be records of dissonance due to lifestyle discrepancies until acclimatization has taken place between the immigrant and the host country.

    Following this current global concern, The Fountain Magazine has organised the 2016 Essay Contest which invites you to consider the issues facing today’s immigrants.
    The question is:
    Are you an immigrant?
    Were your parents or grandparents immigrants?
    Are we all immigrants in this world?
    How do immigrants contribute to your society?
    How do they cause problems in your society?
    How would you help immigrants thrive?

    Give your answers to one of the most pressing global issues.
