Empowerment of Migrant Workers and Good Governance


Western Orissa specially some pockets of Boudh and Bolangir are migration prone area .People   from the particular area move to different States in search of livelihood .A major portion go to brick Klin of Andhrapradesh and Chennai .Youth migration in search of better livelihood is also a matter of concern .Migration can be said as the best coping mechanism as long as corruption, exploitation, atrocities, injustice are not associated with it. But most of the time people suffer due to lack of proper information   , knowledge both at source and destination level. Keeping all these things in mind, Youth Council for development Alternatives (YCDA) has started the initiative on migration issues through the project called “Empowerment of Migrant Workers for sustainable Livelihood and Good Governance”, in Partnership with Sir Dorabji Tata Trust  , Mumbai and technical support from Aajeevikab Bureau .The project started  in February 2010.
