The poverty and deep rooted discrimination keep them away from the development aspects. In rural villages of Salem district, the women and their families are depending on their daily income for basic survival needs. The adverse impacts of pandemic COVID-19, again trapped in the hands of high interest money lenders. Many women migrated as bonded laborer to work in the stone crusher units, Brick kilns, agricultural farms and other industries. The adolescent girls are dropped out from schools and forced to work as camp laborer in the spinning and garment sectors.

At work places, they were treated as slaves, restricted movements, the wages also are exploited. RWDT works continuously to rescue the affected people and urge the government to take necessary actions towards the vulnerable women and families
