Covid-19 Relief Work
Covid-19 has posed unprecedented challenge for all of us and particularly those who have been traditionally marginalized and neglected. The old, ill and the migrant workers are the most affected ones. In this time of crisis, Vigyan Foundation is currently engaged in Covid-19 Relief work in Lucknow as well as Allahabad. At Lucknow, we have formed a Whatsapp group by the name of Support Group Lko Covid-19. Through the group we are coordinating relief work for the urban poor, migrant and homeless. Regular fund raising and reaching out to the distressed through dry ration, cooked food, masks, soaps and sanitary pad is being done. In case you are interested and want to contribute, do drop us a mail at vigyanfoundation@gmail.com or follow us at our facebook page.

Asangathit kaamgar adhikar manch
Asangathit Kaamgar Adhikar manch came into existence in the month of May 2010 as a response to the growing need to collectively react for ensuring inclusion of urban poor and the vast unorganized sector who contribute immensely in running of the city and also its economy. AKAM is an open network and anyone who works in solidarity with the issues of urban poor and unorganized sector can be a part of the network. Currently the network is active in more than 15 districts of the state of Uttar Pradesh.



Core demands:

·         Enumeration of urban poor in census

·         Shelter rights of the homeless community

·         Rights of the unorganized sector workers with special focus on Domestic Workers rights, rickshaw pullers and construction workers

·         Implementation of unorganized sector social security act in the state

·         Capacity building of partner organizations of AKAM
