Write-up for the  Guest Speaker Session

‘Together Employed’ group had an enriching session with ‘Mr. Siddhartha – Daily Wage Worker Platform’ .

Daily Wage Worker Platform (an NGO dedicated to supporting migrant workers) and Mahashakti Foundation (a micro-finance NGO for rural empowerment) have successfully completed project Adhikaar. The project educated and enrolled over 6,000 migrants and their families from tribal districts in Odisha in ten government employment and welfare schemes.

He briefed us on the project and also shared how we could collaborate to empower India’s migrant workers whose lives have been devastated by the pandemic. It helped our inquirers to move forward in their journey and explore ways of making a change in the lives of migrant workers.
