Why support Resolve?
Environment degradation has a catastrophic impact on women, and it is a fact that damage to wetlands, have massively increased unemployment among the women who were completely dependent on local wetlands for sustenance, as it is not easy for her to migrate far for work, with family to look after. Similarly, prolong drought and flood have changed the agriculture dynamics in villages and low yield made them suffer in acute poverty and starvation. Thus circumstanced forced migration to cities was inevitable compelling the 77% of women to take on ragpicking as a profession in cities.
Lack of personal and social security, awareness & education among them and their children and lack of opportunities for the same push them towards exploitation, abuse and ostracization.
- Sustainable Development Goal, (MDG) ensures environmental sustainability and developing global partnership for development. The isolated efforts could not yield effective implementation of the goal in the grass roots.
- Only a joint approach with representatives from the government, CSO’s and private enterprises towards a common goal of sustainable development can yield effective results.
