Voices and Participation: Stories of Migrating Women

An estimated 9 million people leave their homes in South Asia to work in the Gulf countries. Women from South Asia make up a large percentage of the 1.7 million female migrant domestic workers in the Gulf. There is also considerable internal movement for domestic work.

GAATW-IS, in partnership with members and colleagues, has held discussions with returnee female migrant domestic workers in India, Bangladesh and Nepal to better understand the processes and outcomes of migration for women. With consent of the women and the partner organisations the focus group discussions in Nepal and Bangladesh were filmed. 14 short video clips that capture women's stories and perspectives on migration, labour and trafficking are now available on our YouTube channel. We hope that these clips will give a sense of the women's situation and what needs to be done...

ORGANISING FOR CHANGE: IMWs Say NO to Overcharging

OrgforChangeLogoMany Indonesian Migrant Workers [IMWs] are overcharged with excessive placement fees and are indebted in order to pay back their agents due to the existing labour export policies in Indonesia.

The Indonesian migrant workers movement in Hong Kong led by the Association of Indonesian Migrant Workers (ATKI) has initiated the campaign against anti-migrant policies including the overcharging practices.

This 20-minute advocacy video will focus on the issue of overcharging practices that affect Indonesian domestic workers in Hong Kong, as well as other Indonesian migrants across the globe.

Produced by:
The Global Alliance Against Traffic in Women (GAATW) and the Association of Indonesian Migrant Workers in Hong Kong (Asosiasi Tenaga Kerja Indonesian-Hong Kong)
