Migrant Rights

Migrant Rights

This section contains external links to various sites, documents, and other human rights-and migration-related platforms relevant to every migrant worker. As a migrant advocate and an overseas Filipino worker (OFW) myself, I have a first-hand understanding of  the challenges that overseas workers face. A staunch supporter of causes for their advancement, I believe that the very first step to doing it is to share relevant information to help people know their rights.
