MIGRA-SAFE

Is the first project on migration run by GVC and its partners PPS, CWCC and Ministry of Women’s Affairs in Cambodia. Very local in character, the project aimed at promoting safe labour migration in various villages in Cambodia with the ultimate goal of protecting the rights of the Cambodian migrants, especially women and children, and reducing their vulnerability to labour exploitation and human trafficking.

Project activities were manifold, including the establishment of 45 local Self-Help Groups meeting on monthly bases and 9 saving groups, whose over 560 women members took part in saving-credit activities, were trained on an efficient use of remittances and agricultural income generation activities. Moreover, development of a communication campaigns and materials; 9 Multi-Stakeholder Groups for local dialogue and coordination on migration and many more.

Innovative element of the project was the cooperation with Phare Ponleu Selpak organization, which produced a circus – theatre show on migration and staged it in 45 villages across the provinces of Banteay Meanchey, Battambang and Siem Reap. The turnout to the events was fantastic – on average 400-600 people went to each show.
