The International Organization for Migration (IOM) will organize a photo exhibition titled “Prottasha: Hope for Migrants” on Tuesday to raise awareness and to persuade the masses about sustainable reintegration, safe migration and migration governance.
Storytelling is an effective tool to inform and make people aware of the issues of safe migration, sustainable reintegration, and migration governance.
