Verité is proud to announce the launch of a new project supported by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau for Democracy, Human Rights and Labor. The project promotes safe and fair labor migration from India to the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states using a multi-faceted strategic approach to build civil society capacity and coordination in both sending and receiving countries. Our goal is to establish a robust, comprehensive framework protecting migrant workers at every stage of the migration process, from recruitment and deployment to employment and safe return.
