To mark the Day and participate in the #FamilyRemittances2030 Campaign, here are some suggestions for the different sectors involved:
Governments and public sector stakeholders
organize a multi-stakeholder meeting on – or around – June 16 to inform government agencies about your national migrants´ contribution to your countries´ GDP and learn what can be done to maximize the impact of these funds.
promote financial education as a public good and a central pillar of financial inclusion to stimulate the uptake of financial services by migrant workers and their families.
local governments can promote awards for greatest innovations brought migrant returnees or funded by migrant workers in benefit of their home communities.
Private sector entities
Promote a ZERO FEE day or week to transfer remittances for free, in order to encourage the use of international money transfer platforms and reduce informal transactions.
Offer education campaigns that promote trust among remittance customers around the benefits and safety of mobile and other enhanced remittance transferred methods.
Get prepared before migrating for work: pre-departure orientation (use our workshop guidelines containing format, questions, etc (link here).
If you have been a migrant worker for a long time and you are longing to be with your loved ones: Make your desire to reunite with your family a reality, by:
Getting financial education so you know how to save on a regular basis;
Promoting that your loved ones, including your children, learn how to save and use wisely the hard-earned money that you send home regularly; and
Ask your children’s school director/teachers to teach children basic savings principles.
Support your migrant nationals with information about cheapest, safest mechanism to send money home.
Volunteer to provide financial education to migrants (use reference fined material).
Organize a pre-departure awareness-raising day, involving migrant returnees.
