As part of a multi-year project supported by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor, Verité and the International Organization for Migration are arranging a study tour and roundtable discussion in Qatar for a newly formed association called the Association of Skilled Migrant Worker Agencies of Kenya (ASMAK), which is made up of Kenyan private employment agents (PEAs) that are committed to ethical recruitment practices.
With support from the US Department of State Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor, Verité continues work with the International Organization for Migration (IOM) Kenya, civil society organizations, the Government of Kenya, recruitment industry actors, as well as employers in GCC countries to promote safe and fair migration between East Africa and GCC countries. This project recognizes that East African migrants to the GCC countries are among the most vulnerable, as East Africa has become the new frontier for recruiting labor for low wage jobs in GCC countries.
