Help us raise a corpus of Rs. 10 lakhs, as of now, to meet our running expenditure for one year.
Workers Unity is an initiative to help workers raise their voice. We have been working since 2018 as a Media platform, dedicated to workers cause.
Since March, during lockdown we are working for stranded migrant workers through Workers Unity Helpline. We reached nearly 3000 migrant workers through distributing dry ration, water, snacks, medicine and helped in transportation. Simultaneously we have done a number of stories from ground zero, done a lot of live video stories and succeeded to get attention of authorities to real issues on the ground. In this period our audience base expanded substantially. During lockdown we collected Rs 8.5 lacks through crowd funding, friends and well wishers to finance our work.
Our new initiative is to offer legal help to those workers who lost their jobs due to lay off or retrenchment or have not got salaries during lockdown period, through Legal Helpline. We have established a coordination center and some advocates have volunteered to help.
In the past we have worked through Workers Unity team of five members and now this team expanded to eight.
To sustain our future work we need to establish a broad based mass media dedicated for working people, a 24x7 news room, arrange basic infrastructure and sustain our volunteers. The estimated cost for this project is Rs. 10 lakhs as of now. It includes commercial office space, equipments like computers, studio, camera, mic, teleprompter, lights, volunteers expenditure and other running expenditure for one year.
So contribute generously to support our work and worker's voice.
