The Make Migration Work series encourages aspirant migrants and their families to seek as much safe migration information as possible before migrating to better protect themselves from exploitation.
These videos each tell two sides of a story - the perspective of the migrant and the perspective of one of their family members. It is recommended to show both sides of the same story when screening the videos. Beyond aspirant migrants and their families, these videos can also be used provide the general population insight into the motivations and experiences of migrants. Although specifically made for aspirant migrants from Myanmar, the lessons on safe migration from the video can be useful to many aspirant migrants around the world.
In this specific video, Yinmay Zaw left her simple life in rural Myanmar to work in a hotel. She's doing well, largely thanks to her parents, who helped ensure she took the right precautions before leaving home.
