IOMX Stop Exploitation - Safer Migration Series (Episode 1 part A and part B)
An eight part drama series highlighting the advantages and dangers of migration. With hundreds and thousands of Myanmar people migrating from villages to city, and to other countries, the potential for exploitation is huge. The series, commissioned by IOM and realised in partnership with Bridge/Platform Myanmar, aims to educate people from all over Myanmar on the resources available to them by the Myanmar government.
"'Migrants who seek information before they migrate usually have more successful experiences,' said Tara Dermott, IOM X Programme Leader. 'But finding trustworthy information is not always easy. Recognizing that more and more people in Myanmar are accessing the internet every day, through IOM X’s Make Migration Work series, we are showing potential migrants how a visit to a Migrant Resource Centre or how a query posted to Miss Migration on Facebook may make the difference between a good or bad experience for themselves and their families.'
"Since premiering in May of this year, the videos have been viewed over 1.5 million times. Myanmar broadcasters, Democratic Voice of Burma and Mizzima, began regular airings of the videos on television following the forum. These airings are expected to reach millions of people this month." - IOM Documentation
