Provision and Delivery of Services for Inter-state Migrants

About the Project:

Supported by Sir Dorabji Tata Trust,Yugantar through this project provided a platform to deliver certain services like health,social security and financial aid to the inter-state migrant workers working the industrial area of Katedan. As part of these services, health camps in association with Red Cross were conducted at different pockets of the area catering to hundreds of migrants.In order to facilitate their access to social security benefits, Yugantar helped them to get access to pensions,ESI cards and Aadhar cards.Financial literacy programs were conducted to the migrant workers and as part of this service financial diaries were given where they can effectively manage their expenses.Much before the Jan Dhan Yojana program of the central government, Yugantar was helping these workers to open no frills accounts without any hassles.A skill development center in association with Mahila Sanatkar was opened to help the migrant women to learn stitching and tailoring which would enhance their earning ability.
