Every year 2.2 million young people enter the workforce in Bangladesh. However, a lack of knowledge about labour migration and a lack of formally certified skills renders these people highly vulnerable to exploitation if they decide to migrate for employment.

 

High costs of migration and low wages paid to Bangladesh migrant workers present a major challenge for potential migrants. Lack of information about migration opportunities make potential migrants seek support through informal channels, which increases their chance of trafficking, exploitation and abuse.

We promote safe, orderly regular and responsible migration at every step, and ensure migrant workers know their rights and how to exercise them. We raise awareness and facilitate sustainable reintegration addressing and abating human trafficking and migration vulnerability of people, to achieve sustainable development goal 10.7 and 8.7. We provide financial aid, skills development training to avail decent work for aspiring migrant workers and support their reintegration upon return.

IMPACT

 
 
 
  • It is for CSOs, International Agencies, NGOs, Partners, Journalists, and other relevant bodies to work together with the Government to implement the policies properly. In that case, BRAC’s effort in partnership with the Government is really commendable.
    Imran Ahmad
    MP, Hon. Minister, Ministry of Expatriates’ Welfare and Overseas Employment
  • The Government is continuously working for the welfare of the migrants and a combined effort is needed right now. Urgent assistance is needed for the returnees and BRAC’s efforts are very timely.
    Dr Ahmed Munirus Saleheen
    Secretary, Ministry of Expatriates’ Welfare and Overseas Employment
  • On behalf of the Government of Denmark, we are very happy to support BRAC to ensure the wellbeing of the returnee migrants who are unemployed now, lost their sources of earning and have come back to their home country, empty-handed. BRAC has truly shown how to stand beside everyone in these crisis moments in the most humane way possible.
