With this newsletter on May Day, we wish to express our solidarity with the millions of Migrant Labourers stranded across the country. Their agonies, tears and apprehensions, their struggle and strife, fill us with a sense of anguish, and we want to reach out, and help them in anyway possible.
These people are the backbone of the nation, and yet, are the worst hit, as the country struggles to contain the blight of the coronavirus. The helpless conditions of those who had but set out to make a living with dignity, and are now suddenly reduced to depending on dole affect us deeply. At this moment, we feel one with the labour class.
As the fear of the Coronavirus spreads Agragamee has fanned out to create awareness and demonstrated the necessary precautions for its prevention in the tribal and rural hinterlands.
Agragamee’s work with some of the poorest and most vulnerable communities has time and again underlined that strategic support in key areas, can help communities take definitive strides towards self-reliance. We invite you to join us in our efforts and help those who labour to produce our food and build our cities lead a life of dignity and self-reliance. Please do respond to the issues and reports that interest you in this newsletter. We hope to make this space interactive and lively, and involve all concerned and like minded people in building a more egalitarian and just society.
