Helping Bangladeshi Migrant Workers Migrate Safely

In 2020 Diginex developed SafeStep– a ground-breaking mobile application that leverages frontier machine learning and data management to promote safe recruitment for migrant workers in collaboration with the GFEMS. 

The first iteration of the application, which is now live on the Google Play App Store, is designed for Bangladeshi workers considering migrating to work in GCC countries. Up to 1,000,0000 Bangladeshi workers migrate to the G.C.C. each year in search of work and pays on average 20 months of salary in recruitment. 

Key features include a user profile and social network, migration digital library and checklist, budget calculator, eLearning, and Help Centre with an interactive AI chat bot.

SafeStep plays a key role in our vision for end-to-end ethical recruitment, which needs to include the awareness for all parties in the supply chain.

Partners: Diginex Solutions developed SafeStep in 2020 as part of a consortium with ELEVATE and Winrock International through funding provided by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), and the Global Fund to End Modern Slavery (GFEMS).
