Happy International Migrant Workers Day!

“Being a migrant worker is not something I dreamt of to be, but it’s something I am proud to be.”

For the International Migrant Workers Day, we asked our community what makes them happy despite the hardships they face!

We created a giant smile with their photos and you can read more below about what makes them smile in their migration journeys.
