The last few months have unleashed an adversity upon mankind which has few parallels in our collective memories. The Covid-19 pandemic has had paralyzing effects on the livelihoods of millions of migrant workers who depend on daily wages to sustain themselves and their families. With scarcity and a lack of employment opportunities transcending regional spheres, thousands of families have been driven into homelessness, and many more into relocating.
In April 2020, Kushal Bharat embarked on a mission to make a small but meaningful impact in the lives of these pandemic-stricken families, and has been successful in rekindling their livelihoods.
We work with our mentors and partners to identify people who have lost their livelihoods and who are seeking financial support to put their lives back on track
We do a quick screening and evaluation of the intended end-use of the grant to ensure maximum impact
We crowdsource funds to provide grants to the shortlisted beneficiaries
We track the progress of the beneficiaries and over time plan to create an ecosystem to bring them back into the social and economic mainstream
Till Sept. 2020, Kushal Bharat has been able to provide support to over 40 migrant workers who lost their jobs due to the pandemic. These are some of their stories.
