Fighting the migration challenge in Malaysia – Founders Valley (2/3) | DW Documentary

Many undocumented migrants work in so-called “3D jobs” – dirty, dangerous and demeaning professions. Millions live a life without any prospects. We meet entrepreneurs in Malaysia who are trying to give migrants back their dignity. This is Part 2 of a 3 part series “Founders Valley”

With foreign workers contributing more than a third to Malaysia’s gross domestic product, migrants help shape the country’s economy and society. However, undocumented migrants tend to exist outside the formal infrastructure. Most of them work in low-skilled jobs in miserable conditions, often existing on the margins of society. Startup founders are helping improve the lives of migrants in Malaysia.
