Mimpi Musafir Malaysia Safe Migration Training Kit

Funder: Open Society Foundation
Period: 2012-2013


OTMI designed and produced the "Mimpi Musafir: Working in Malaysia" training kit consisting of a drama-documentary style video and a board game to teach pre-departure migrant workers and their communities about their rights and how to migrate safely.

We trained more than 450 NGO activists, students, village officials, government workers, police, and village members in fourteen major migrant worker sending areas in Java, on how to use the training kit to teach their surrounding communities about safe migration. These training and socialization events were held by working with the National Agency for the Placement and Protection of Indonesian Migrant Workers (BNP2TKI) during their 'Gebyar TKI' socialization tour, as well as many local NGO partners.

OTMI also created a six-episode radio drama under the same title, to further spread the message of safe migration to migrant workers and their families in Java, Sumatera, East and West Nusa Tenggara and Kalimantan. The radio drama was aired by over 20 commercial and community radio stations throughout Indonesia.

Almost 40,000 people participated in the video and radio drama quizzes, meaning that thousands of people across the country have been exposed to OTMI's safe migration messages. Respondents showed increased awareness, improved understanding of the issue, and also stated their intention to spread the information to others.

The videos and radio drama are available to watch on OTMI's YouTube channel.
