Pre-departure training curriculum: Viet Nam to Malaysia: Participant's manual

This manual is to be used to deliver the pre-departure orientation training for Vietnamese migrant workers travelling to Malaysia.

Migrants make enormous development contributions to their host and origin countries. Nevertheless many migrant workers, particularly those working in low-skilled sectors are subject to labour exploitation and abuse. The pre-departure orientation training will provide information prior to the migrant's departure on the workers' rights and responsibilities; the destination country's culture, laws and policies; accessing support services and complaints mechanisms; sending money home, and return and reintegration. The end goal is to reduce the workers' vulnerabilities, to empower them to protect themselves, to recognize situations of labour rights violations, to seek help as required, and finally to have a profitable and positive migration experience.
