    • Project

      Over the years, there has been an increasing number of women leaving to work overseas. Most of their work falls under the low-skilled category, which includes domestic and service workers; making them vulnerable to poor working conditions, abuse, and exploitation.  When women migrants return home, they face limited opportunities for livelihood and reintegration.

      The Empowering Women Migrants Through Cooperatives project empowers women migrant returnees (entertainers from Japan and domestic workers from the Middle East and Asian countries) through a cooperative, a different yet effective approach for reintegration. This is achieved by providing them with economic opportunities and support network among peers. This initiative conducts team-building activities that establishes a camaraderie and forges ties among women migrant returnees. A series of capacity-building seminars are conducted to equip members with the necessary skills to manage and operate a cooperative.

      These activities provide a foundation for engaging them into a cooperative as this will require competencies and strong peer support. Several activities are also transpire carried out to increase awareness on issues of women migrant returnees and establish partnerships with various stakeholders.
