 The miracle of organ donation — and a breakthrough for the future | Abbas Ardehali | File Type: video/mp4 | Duration: 00:10:07

 A path to social safety for migrant workers | Ashif Shaikh | File Type: video/mp4 | Duration: 00:07:57

Hundreds of millions of migrant workers travel within their countries to seek out means of survival — often leaving behind all they know for months or even years. Many face poverty and exploitation, and they need a robust social safety net to protect them, says migrant advocate and 2023 Audacious Project grantee Ashif Shaikh. He shares how his grassroots organization Migrants Resilience Collaborative is making life-changing benefits like social security and health care accessible to those who need them while also amplifying migrant voices — paving the way towards a world that supports the workers actually building it. (This ambitious idea is a part of the Audacious Project, TED's initiative to inspire and fund global change.)

(This conversation is hosted by TED curator Cloe Shasha Brooks.)
