Chintan aims to support marginalised urban waste pickers, empowering them to gain a fair wage and linking them into formal systems of sustainable waste management.
Chintan uses waste as a tool to empower women and fight poverty whilst creating green livelihoods. Health and nutrition remain neglected amongst poor communities, especially for women and girls.
A special Delhi-based project in the wake of COVID-19 will help communities of urban waste pickers become more self-reliant by growing vegetables in their localities.
Rangsutra acts as a bridge between rural artisans and global consumers. Their goal is to create sustainable livelihoods for India’s highly skilled artisans and nature the rich intangible cultural heritage embodied by their craft skills and knowledge.
Rangsutra is especially committed to supporting women artisans helping them navigate rapidly transforming urban markets in order to gain maximum benefits including fair wages, a safe working environment, skills training and equal pay.
