According to the data released by the Safer Migration Project (SaMi) under Ramgram Municipality, some 56 percent households receive remittances through foreign employment and about 40 million people are outside the country for foreign employment.

According to the project, social and foreign problems are increasing in society due to foreign employment.

The project has concluded that in the past, women had to stay depressed after returning from foreign employment, but now with the change in people's perception, it has become easier for women to live as a member of society.
