Celebrating International Migrant Day 2020 #Bringing back the skills

December 18th is International Migrants Day. On this day 30 years ago, countries around the world agreed on international standards to protect migrant workers. Every year in Myanmar we celebrate this day to remember Myanmar migrant workers, thank them for their contribution to Myanmar’s economy and to raise awareness about the lives of migrants.

This year, we collected the stories of migrants who came back to Myanmar. We want to highlight the lives and work of migrants when they return to Myanmar to show how they are using their experience and skills when they return to Myanmar. Sincere thanks to all those who shared their stories.
