Migrant Women in the Struggle against Poverty


The choice to migrate, to leave loved ones behind, to venture forth into the unknown, represents for millions of impoverished women, a heart-wrenching, first-step towards poverty’s end.

Today, there are over 200 million migrants working abroad. Half are women. Each year, they remit some US $300 billion to developing nations, building homes, feeding families, and educating children.

These migrants and their remittances are a pivotal force in poverty eradication, argues Dr. Sarah Mavrinac, president of aidha, a Singapore based social enterprise.
