AID have devised a strategy for the rehabilitation of manual scavenger families. Most notably, The Prohibition of Employment as Manual Scavengers and Their Rehabilitation Act-2013 appeals to the authorities to implement the Act and make them aware of the Act.
AID have met with the Mayour and discussed the rehabilitation of manual scavengers many times. We have filed many appeals. We have organized the Manual Scavengers and discussed the Act. He has addressed a lot about the MS Act.
Essentially, AID is hoping that the manual scavengers will be fully identified and rehabilitated in accordance with the MS Act. It is constantly working with manual scavengers and government.
We envisage a just society free from all kind of exploitation, discrimination and injustice and where no one remains hungry, unemployed, illiterate and exploited.
