IOM provides pre-departure business training for Kyrgyz migrants
Bishkek- Working in a new country with different culture, traditions, and practices can require an adjustment period of variable duration and difficulty. IOM recognizes that early, tailored provision of training and information is key to empowering migrants and paving the way for their successful integration.
On 18 January, IOM conducts financial literacy training to support forty-seven departing migrants to the UK within the regional project on Promoting Safe Migration of Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan Nationals to the UK. The main purpose of this training is to empower participants to adapt more rapidly and successfully to the day-to-day demands of their new environment and to better navigate the services in place.
More specifically, participants will acquire the necessary knowledge and skills in effective methods of accounting earnings, fraud prevention strategies, and understanding of the tax system and inflation, as well as information on how to claim refunds, avoid unnecessary payments, use money transfer tools, and implement methods of saving money.
