Migra Action

To improve safe channels of migration, the project strengthens the capacity to recognize cases of exploitation, increase advocacy and communication skills of CSOs, Local Authorities, migrants and their families to raise awareness at local, national and international level. It increases knowledge at local level through 25 Self Help Groups (SHGs), protecting migrants against many forms of abuse connected to unsafe migrations and human trafficking. SHGs help collect information to understand the impact of measures and their real implementation in the field.
With an aim of raising awareness on the risks of irregular migration among potential migrants, the project focuses on the empowerment of communities as well as former migrants.

Central part of the project are its Social Ambassadors – former migrants, who decided to speak up and share their testimonies with their communities to raise awareness of other fellow Cambodians and potential migrants. Read ‘More Than a Story’ – collection of their testimonies to get to know them better.
Important element of the project has been the communication campaign implemented in cooperation with Media One. The campaign was carried out in collaboration and involvement of Peer Educators, youths who were trained on storytelling, video and photo editing to collect testimonies of migrants back in their villages and inform their peers about the risks of irregular migration. Read their stories on the project Facebook page:

MIGRA ACTION, a follow up of the MIGRA-SAFE project implemented in previous years, focuses on close collaboration with local and national Cambodian authorities – especially the National and Provincial Committee for Counter Trafficking (NCCT and PCCT) and Provincial Officials of Ministry of Labour – monitoring and advocating for the implementation of effective solutions by the government and promotion of the reporting of exploitation cases.
MIGRA ACTION acts also as a bridge to the MIG-RIGHT project which aims at enhancing the cooperation between Thai and Cambodian authorities.
