Case management for trafficked and exploited migrant workers

Case management for trafficked and severely exploited migrant workers: A manual for OWWA case officers

This manual was created to standardize the system of service delivery and to promote and protect the well-being of affected OFWs, without necessarily undermining the uniqueness of their cases or the diversities of cultures and laws overseas.

The trafficking of migrant workers and their severe exploitation are serious cases involving violations of human rights. They concern aspects of migration, labour, gender and criminality. Apparently, Filipinos work abroad to afford better quality of life for themselves and their families. Their aspirations are almost always the same: a comfortable life for the family, education for the children, acquisition of house and lot, and having business of their own.
