  • Centre for Migration and Labour Solutions

    The Centre for Migration and Labour Solutions (CMLS) is a knowledge hub that focuses on informal work and labour migration. It uses participatory tools of inquiry and research evidence to develop policy positions. CMLS conducts research inquiries on labour and migration, gender, safety, labour law, supply chains, and urban governance. Its research is based on ethnographic action research, reflecting community concerns. The findings inform its programmes and shape policy messages for institutions, industry stakeholders, and multilateral organisations like the ILO. CMLS produces various outputs including tools for grassroots mobilization, engages in dialogues with state institutions and industry, and contributes to popular media and academic journals. Its blog, Migrantscape, features insights and guest commentaries on labour and migration. Currently, more than 13,000 women are organised in ‘Ujala Samoohs’ across rural South Rajasthan.

  • Family Empowerment Programme

    The Family Empowerment Programme (FEP) focuses on empowering women in migrant-affected communities. It addresses the challenges faced by women left behind when men migrate, who take on increased care and work responsibilities. The programme promotes solidarity groups called ‘Ujala Samoohs’, where women come together, voice their needs, and claim entitlements. These groups form powerful apex structures at the block level, representing women's voices. Dedicated peer leaders and volunteers called ‘Ujala Mitras’ lead the groups, challenging existing power structures. Through their efforts, families have gained access to social protection programmes like NREGA, pensions, and subsidized rations. ‘Ujala Mitras’ have increased visibility and influence in local self-governments and planning. The FEP supports women workers in various locations through collectivization, including Udaipur, Dungarpur, Banswara, Ahmedabad, and Beawar.
