Livelihood and Skill Development

Nearly 70% of India’s unemployed population comes from marginalized and disadvantaged communities. Jan Sahas’ work focuses on comprehensive social-economic empowerment of women and men from the most excluded communities of migrants, survivors of violence, and forced labour, and single and widowed women. We believe providing employable and dignified opportunities will be crucial for their rehabilitation and advancement of these communities. In order to build the financial resilience of these communities, Jan Sahas has initiated ‘Dignity and Design’ as a part of our efforts, under which we have provided skills and meaningful employment to over 47,800 women and men through sources such as tailoring units, drivers’ training centres, dignity stores, digital literacy and entrepreneurship development.
