The purpose of this project proposal is to outline an initiative aimed at defending migrant rights through a comprehensive approach that combines policy perspectives and targeted interventions. The project seeks to address the critical challenges faced by migrants, including exploitation, discrimination, and lack of access to basic rights and services. By advocating for migrant rights and implementing practical interventions, this project aims to contribute to a fair and inclusive society.
Migrant populations face numerous barriers that hinder their ability to enjoy basic human rights, such as access to healthcare, education, employment, and legal protection. Discrimination, xenophobia, and inadequate policies exacerbate these challenges. This project aims to bring together stakeholders from various sectors to develop policy frameworks and implement interventions that promote and safeguard the rights of migrants.
The key objectives of this project are as follows:

- Advocate for the development and implementation of inclusive policies that protect migrant rights at national, regional, and international levels.
- Raise awareness among policymakers, civil society organizations, and the general public about the importance of migrant rights and the need for comprehensive interventions.
- Develop and implement targeted interventions to address immediate challenges faced by migrant populations, such as access to legal aid, healthcare services, and education.
- Strengthen the capacity of relevant stakeholders, including government agencies, NGOs, and community organizations, to effectively defend migrant rights.
- Foster collaboration and knowledge sharing among stakeholders working on migrant rights issues to enhance the effectiveness of interventions.
To achieve the objectives outlined above, the project will follow the following methodology:
