SafeStep Project

The SafeStep mobile phone application was originally designed and launched in 2020 by a consortium including ELEVATE, Diginex and Winrock International with funding from UK aid and the Global Fund to End Modern Slavery (GFEMS) to support Bangladeshi migrants traveling to Gulf Coast countries. It has been expanded with additional funding from GFEMS and new private sector partners to includes Malaysia as a destination country. The mobile app includes tools to help current and prospective migrants safely navigate their migration journeys.
