Jan Chetna Sansthan works in collaboration with
Ajeevika Bureau to assess the livelihood condition of migrant laborers.
We work at the place of destination on increasing their wage rate

At the source, we work on skill up-gradation of tribal youth and
employ them in nearby area thus curbing the need to migrate among

in the hands of the employers and middlemen.
