Supporting Livelihoods

Why we need your help

The Covid 19 Pandemic has had a devistating impact  on the livelihoods of vast numbers of people around the world. As is often the case those suffering the most are those least cope, the unemployed, the working poor, single parents, the homeless etc.

SAVE is supporting and collaborating with Calcutta Social Project in two of its projects safeguarding  and supporting livelihoods.

These are:

SANJEEVANI: THE FOOD AID PROGRAM FOR DAILY WAGE EARNERS AFFECTED BY LOCKDOWN AND ECONOMIC COLLAPSE (RUNNING SINCE May 2020) The program gives essential food rations and cooking ingredients for two square meals a day, once a week, to last every CSP beneficiary family for the whole week till their next collection day. The Program has enabled over 800 poor people to have security of food on an assured basis. It is still current.

and

SAMBHAV: RESTORING LIVELIHOODS LOST
The program is designed to counter the devastating economic effects of the pandemic and accompanying lockdown on the poorest section of society. This is manifest in three primary areas:
• Loss of livelihood
• Debt incurred at unsustainable interest burdens
• Inability to finance education of children as a result of the above

We need your help to support this very important work to safeguard peoples livelihoods

India is not only seeing record number of Covid 19 cases , it is also a mute witness to the alarming decimation of livelihood of its most critical yet populous workforce that lies below the poverty line The loss of employment , the shutting down of small businesses , the imposition of lockdowns , leaves little hope for survival for this community amidst the current blanket of uncertainty that cloaks human life in
the wake of the Covid -19 Pandemic.

IT WAS POSSIBLE FOR A VIRUS TO BRING THE WORKFORCE TO A
STANDSTILL.
                                        BUT ....
IT IS ALSO POSSIBLE TO HELP CREATE THE PATH TO THE REBIRTH OF A NEW
FUTURE , A NEW NORMAL
.
