International Day of Family Remittances

The International Day of Family Remittances (IDFR) recognizes more than 200 million migrant workers, women and men, who send money home to over 800 million family members. A remittance is money sent back home by a worker who works in a foreign land. This money that is sent back home by migrant workers is considered to be one of the largest financial inflows in developing countries. This day further highlights the great resilience of migrant workers in the face of economic insecurities, natural and climate-related disasters and a global pandemic.

The LAB4GE’s partners unite to recognise the advancements made globally for Women’s Human Rights.We use this occasion to raise awareness of the work that is being done to promote equality of rights and access in our different countries and share our best practices.
