Stories of Nepali Migrants: Foreign Employment: My Experience, My Story
Related Sustainable Development Goals and Global Compact for Migration Objectives
Migration is a decisive factor in Nepal’s socio-economic landscape. Nepali migrants and diaspora are key partners in the country’s sustainable development progress and planning, and almost half of Nepali households have a family member who is either working overseas or returned. However, Nepali migrants often face many challenges both when they go abroad for work and after they return to Nepal to find job opportunities.
This video is a short documentary in which Nepali migrants talk about their own stories of working abroad. From their personal experiences, they encourage people who plan to work abroad to have skills and relevant certificates, and learn the basics of local language before departure. These can help migrant workers get better job opportunities and be able to defend their rights in the countries of destination.
