About The Webinar:
Covid-19 is not just a healthcare and economic crisis, it is a crisis that will change the way livelihoods are being earned & humanity is being looked upon. For the millions of migrants who are at the crux of this disaster – helpless and made vulnerable, it’s time we rethink and introspect the way we view our invisible workforce.
Shedding light on the millions stranded locally & globally, what would it take to ensure that stakeholders across all levels consider this plight of the large informal sector. As millions of them face job loss, unpaid wages, starvation, abuse and displacement, many have only one option – to return back home.
