Getting Started (migration in Tajikistan)

Surveys have revealed that about 30% of external labour migrants from Tajikistan have no profession. About 60% of Tajik labour migrants do not work in their area of skills. The lack of skills makes it difficult for these migrants to defend their most fundamental labour rights.Two key agencies, the International Labour Organization and the UN Development Programme with support of the UN Trust Fund for Human Security and the Government of Japan are cooperating closely to help Tajikistan solve the problem. This film is about a joint ILO and UNDP project “Community Development through Job Creation and Effective Migration Management” being implemented in the Rasht Region, Tajikistan. The film will tell you about the programme and the people it has benefited.
