Get More From Life

April 21st, 2016

“In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years,” Abraham Lincoln.

The foundation of human migration lies in our perseverance to achieve more. Historical migration of the human population began with the movement of Homo erectus out of Africa across Eurasia about 1.75 million years ago1. Early humans migrated due to many factors such as changing climate and landscape and inadequate food supply.

In the past few years, the number of migrants has risen rapidly for various reasons:
job opportunities, labor shortage, internal conflict and war, natural disasters, etc. At present, more than 247 million people, or
3.4 percent of the world population, live outside their countries of birth and migrants are now sending earnings over US$441 billion back to their families in developing countries. These inflows of cash lead to increased investments in health, education, and small businesses in various communities2.
