The CIC will work with Harawa-Charawa families in bonded labour through trainings and knowledge sharing. Savings and credit groups will be formed, with members also participating in trainings focusing on issues such as human rights, trafficking, bonded labour and reproductive health. Harawa-Charawa families will also undergo livelihood training and receive Income Generating Activity support.
CIC will also promote awareness of health and hygiene, and access to health services. Through CIC’s 2018-2019 project, community members will also benefit from discussions with Village Development Committee members, help accessing government entitlements, gender rights workshops and the dissemination of information, education and communications materials.
