Social Media Campaign
Around 5 lakh unique Facebook users have been reached through #migrant_first (#প্রবাসী_প্রথম) campaign. IID reached this number of migrant workers through its targeted online campaign in the destination countries with videos on awareness building on migration rules and regulations, advice on money management for migrants, middlemen etc. IID’s custom targeting of social media users have been proved effective in reaching the intended target group—the migrant workers living abroad.
