Who we are

AMKAS NEPAL is an organization for, by and of returnee women migrant workers working for the protection of the rights and interest of migrant workers, especially women migrant workers and their families. Since its establishment, AMKAS NEPAL has been advocating for the rights of women migrant workers and safer migration. On 26 December 2016, AMKAS Nepal was founded and has been registered in the Local Development Office, District Administration Office and has legally been approved and certified by the Social Welfare Council. Women migrant workers are members of AMKAS. The Executive founder members have more than 16 years of experience working in the Migration sector. These members have hands on experience of dealing with more than 1000 legal cases and providing psychosocial counseling to victimized women migrant workers. Rural women returnee migrant workers from districts are facilitating AMKAS’s outreach to potential women migrant workers for ensuring that the whole migration cycle is safe. This is enabled through advocacy from the grass root to the national to the international levels especially to influence policies that address migrant domestic workers e.g. national laws, ILO C189, GR 26 etc. The aim is to reduce their vulnerabilities to trafficking and enhance their access to shelter, legal services, health services, psychosocial counseling and protection in their hour of need. At the same time, AMKAS also focuses on uniting and networking of returnee women migrant workers, building their capacity, massive awareness programs and continuous reintegration through livelihood programs to ensure safer migration.
