Migrant Forum (MF) is a platform of returnee migrant workers and the spouses of migrant workers. OKUP, over the years, has established 44 Union level MFs under five sub-districts – Araihazar, Brahmanpara, Char Bhadrasan, Munshiganj Sadar, and Narsingdi Sadar, and provided technical support to the forum members to enhance their leadership and capacity.Our continuous leadership building orientation sessions and training contributed to make the migrant forums an active change-maker in society. As a community-led voluntary forum, the MFs have also become the centre of support and services for the returnees. These MFs now play a strong role in respective communities to build resilience against unsafe migration and trafficking. They work as a ‘peer support’ group for both social and economic reintegration of the returnee migrant workers in respective communities
