Empowering Migrant Construction Workers
Unskilled migrants depend largely on the construction sector for employment and women constitute more than one third of this work force.
Sampark’s in-depth study with migrant construction workers showed the lack of identity, access to decent employment and basic living conditions, education,health and subsidized food from PDS,pre and post-natal care. The principal employers and contractors do not know about the existence of Building and other Construction Workers Welfare Board (BOCWWB) and its welfare schemes especially designed for the construction workers.
Sampark has developed 2 Workers Resource Centers and a Shramik sahayavani toll free number 1800-425-1080 and worked with 20000 migrant workers. These centers help create awareness and empower migrant workers to access their entitlements in the areas of health, education, financial inclusion and social and legal.
