Within the wide canvas of migration that’s taking place across the country, Aajeevika Bureau’s work is focused on supporting vulnerable segments within migration dependent communities across the western-Indian migration corridor

At the rural end of this migration corridor, our work spans multiple districts in the tribal belt of south Rajasthan (populated by Bhil, Garasiya and Meena tribe), which serve as key source regions from where workers (predominantly men; but increasingly women’s and families as well) migrate to seek employment in the informal economy of cities. This migration is seasonal and circular in nature, triggered by factors like marginal land-holding, seasonality of agriculture, and the local economy’s inability to meet demands for non-farm employment. Districts in Rajasthan that are currently covered by our programmes include - Udaipur, Dungarpur, Banswara, Sirohi, Pratapgarh and Chittorgarh

At the urban end, we are located in the cities of Ahmedabad, Surat, Mumbai, Pune and Bangalore - all massive recipients of migrant workers from Rajasthan and elsewhere in the country

At each location, we operate through worker facilitation centres that are located within industrial hubs and major source regions with significant worker outflow

In addition to these locations where we have direct presence, partnerships with organisations like Kotda Adivasi Sansthan (KAS), Grameen Evam Samajik Vikas Sansthan (GSVS) and Safe in India, allow us to engage in aligned work in other parts of the country
