I am passionate about
ActionsI have helped to create positive change through working with Migrant Right
Promotion Working Group (MRPWG) by identifying their challenges and
solutions. For example, in the border area, there is discrimination against
migrant workers despite low skills migrant labors are highly demanded,
especially in Special Economic Zone. To overcome this challenge and create
the positive environment in the diverse community, I work with the network
group to design strategy to build capacity for migrant communities to avoid
labor rights violation, raise awareness among business sector and government
sector of how we could corporate for benefit of each side. The network group
conducts several meetings with factories owners and recently we have better
responds from them.
I have also change the mentality of local authorities towards women victims
and migrants. Case-by-case that I have to come across ignorant officers, I
slowly influence them of how it is important to value ‘equity’ and
sensitivity in Justice System when it comes to vulnerable cases. The law
enforcer has been more aware and more cooperate with local NGO. This would
help the pro bono legal organization to help more people and allow
marginalized people to access to compensation.
First and foremost, I have been reaching to communities and empowering women
to be aware of Domestic Violence issues, to empower each other and to break
the silence knowing that they have every rights to do so.
