India has more than 100 million people affected by distress seasonal migration. Most of these migrants work in the informal sector, without access to any social security. As per the World Bank, lives of more than 40 million of these migrants have been devastated by COVID-19 induced socio-economic distress.
Despite access restrictions, AIF’s teams have worked around the clock to provide immediate help to 425,000 people across 17 states of India. Whilst the relief work continues, AIF’s Rebuilding Lives initiative is a comprehensive, multi-dimensional approach to creating a more resilient future for vulnerable women, children and youth.
