Call for Volunteers!

5th World Social Forum on Migration

Manila, Philippines

November 2012

Migrant Forum in Asia (MFA) is mobilizing international volunteers to assist in the organization of the 5th World Social Forum on Migration, which will take place in Manila, Philippines on 26-30 November 2012.

The World Social Forum on Migration is an event that falls in line with the World Social Forums (WSF), which is a space for democratic debate of ideas, reflection, formulation of proposals, exchange of experiences and articulation of social movements, networks, NGOs and other civil society organizations that are opposed to neoliberal globalization and the restriction of granting citizenship and civil rights, political, economic, social and cultural rights of migrants, displaced, refugees and stateless persons.

MFA is looking to build a team of highly motivated volunteers who seek to expand their international experience and contribute to the growing migrants’ rights movement. The team will assist MFA staff and the Philippine Working Group with planning, logistics, and the execution of this major international event.



Volunteers must be self-funded and willing to spend a considerable amount of time in Manila (4-6 months) working as key members of the volunteer team. MFA will be able to provide the following:

  • Accommodations: dormitory style or twin sharing room
  • Meals allowance if needed
  • Local transportation for work related activities

MFA is a membership network of migrant organizations, migrants’ rights advocates, trade unions, faith-based organizations, and individuals working to protect and promote the rights of migrant workers and members of their families. MFA currently has more than 200 members in 16 countries in Asia. www.mfasia.org

Interested applicants should email application form, resumes and a brief statement of interest to mfa@pacific.net.hk, c/o Ms. Tatcee Macabuag.
