Our sincere appreciate to Dusti local authorities, including district Deputy Mayor Ms. Zebo Sharifzoda, for hosting group of Khatlon journalists and answering their questions at a special press-conference dedicated to the life of families affected by migration and left behind.
The journalists also visited some of these families in Dusti to hear their stories and report on their needs.
This initiative has been organized jointly by IOM and UN Women within the United Nations initiative to support families left behind in Tajikistan and aims to increase the local society awareness on life of these families. The United Nations agencies, such as IOM, UNICEF, UN Women, and FAO teamed up with the Government of Tajikistan to reduce vulnerability and empower women and children from families left behind by their migrant breadwinner.
The project is funded through the UN Migration Multi-Partner Trust Fund.
