Safe Migration & Worker Protection

There are 140 million migrant workers in India who are forced to migrate due to lack of livelihood opportunities at home. Poor working conditions, long working hours, lack of water, sanitation or safety equipment and forced labour are perennial problems faced by the migrant workers and their families.
