GlobalARRK is for mums and dads who find themselves trapped in a foreign country because the other parent forbids them to leave. It was set up in 2012 by mums who have been through it, come out the other side but not forgotten! We have a lively Facebook page called 'Expat Stuck Mums', twitter feeds - @GlobalARRK and @ExpatParentInt and this website. We aim to:
Raise awareness to prevent this situation through working with the media; contacting decision makers; attending migration fairs and publishing information
Support parents through email and Facebook messages; sharing experiences and linking up parents so they can form local support networks
Campaignto change the law so that Expat families wanting to return home are not put into the same category as abduction cases. We are currently writing a new campaign and would welcome your input!
