Brief on Work in Freedom Programme in Nepal
PDF File Size: 190 KB | Download   
For many in Nepal, migration is an important alternative to the realities of home. People move long distances in pursuit of jobs for varying reasons ranging from economic aspirations or loss of habitat resulting from processes of economic transformation, poverty, climate change or gender based violence. While some migrate internally, many also migrate abroad.
The Work in Freedom programme has engaged the Ministry of Labour, trade unions and the National Association of Foreign Employment Agencies in improving regulations and practices of recruitment. Following advocacy and technical guidance by the Work in
Freedom programme, the government of Nepal introduced a free visa and free ticket policy for the GCC countries and Malaysia.
