Initiative Update

Empowered women waster pickers through various socio-economic schemes.

Posted June 8, 2020 from India

By building leadership skills, I was able to impact women waste pickers and their children across three separate districts in Maharashtra, India. In addition, I was able to work with the government to secure their official ID cards to secure their work in waste segregation. Through my organization, I have been able to impact 1500 women. We have trained also them on setting up Self-Help Groups, money saving scheme with credit unions, and how to set up their own business. The children of the women waste pickers are now attending government schools.

How many people have you impacted since your last update?
