Worker's Rights Training

The women photographed here are participants in a YIP training regarding the National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (NREGA). The act ensures that if asked for, an unemployed person without land will receive work for 100 days and receive 120 rupees payment per day. While there are requirements as far as participants for the training to be valid, the leader of YIP and this particular training, Narinder Bedi, is adamant that women are represented as well as men.
