Changes We Bring


Changes We Bring

Jan Chetna collaborates with Aajeevika Bureau to assess the condition of migrant laborers' livelihood. Our objective is to increase their wage rates at the destination and work with local middlemen to eliminate any exploitative practices. At the source, we focus on skill up-gradation of tribal youth and provide them with employment opportunities in nearby areas, thus reducing the need to migrate among the youth. We have successfully organized two hotel management trainings, and the boys are currently placed in hotels in Mount Abu. Moving forward, we plan to issue identity cards to tribals and establish a Shramik Surakhsa Manch to uphold their rights and prevent exploitation by employers and middlemen. Additionally, Jan Chetna and Aajeevika Bureau conducted a study on child labour and identified that a significant portion of children between the ages of 8 to 14 migrate to Gujarat to work in cotton fields under severe conditions and for meager pay. We have consistently raised this issue with the local bodies, and find collaborative ways to address it.
