Making migration safer: how the project developed

The project addressing the situation of Nepali migrant workers in Delhi had two phases. The first improved their financial literacy, the second focused on their organisation. This turned out to be very challenging.

The South Asia Study Center in Delhi used different means quite efficiently to inform migrants about their rights or how they could send money back safely to their families in Nepal. When in a second phase the NGO assisted the organisation of the watchmen, they met with a lot of political pressure.

In the video, Prof. Dr. Susan Thieme describes what happened, puts it into context, and points out that activists who advocate the rights of marginalised people often take a great personal risk.
