Summary

Pipal Tree Foundation is starting a project to provide relief and opportunity to the Migrant Daily wage labourers who are jobless and uprooted due to lock down caused by COVID 19. We are looking for donors to fund this project so that we can address this issue on large scale over next 3 to 6 months. We plan to raise more INR 100 MM to provide support to 10K migrant workers from multiple states. The project involves dry ration to families, short term skill training, free toolkit and job linkage

Challenge

According to the International Labour Organisation, more than 90% of India's workforce is employed in the informal sector. Majority of these are daily wage earners working in construction field as labourers. With the country vide lockdown, the worst affected in this Corona virus crisis are these daily wagers and labourers. The curfew has robbed them of their daily income. Millions of workers have migrated back to their hometowns. The halt of construction activity has rendered them helpless.

Solution

Post lock down immediately we plan to provide one month's dry ration to families of impacted labourers. Then we would provide short term skill upgradation training to them at their villages. We would provide them 15 days of non-residential training for skills where immediate jobs could be provided. Free food would be provided during training and tool kits relevant to the skill set would be provided.Post Training we would connect them to available job opportunities to help them earn wages.

Long-Term Impact

Job loss and lockdown has created distress and depression among daily wage workers. This activity would help them build confidence, improve skills. Free ration for family and free food during training should help address some of family pressure. Tool kit should help them commence the work. Immediate linkages with available jobs would provide opportunity to be gainfully employed and earn livelihood. In long run they can develop expertise in the skill and earn better wages.
