LabourNet is part of a consortium of GFEMS partners working to sustainably reduce prevalence in India’s construction sector. This project incorporates learnings from previous GFEMS efforts to incentivize micro-contractors, independent contractors who employ 5-20 workers apiece, to adopt ethical behaviors, eliminating exploitation in the construction supply chain.
LabourNet is a social enterprise that enables sustainable livelihoods for men, women and youth in urban and rural areas. LabourNet’s three-pronged engine integrates social and business impact by bridging the gaps in Education, Employment and Entrepreneurship.
LabourNet focuses on formalizing the informal by improving the socioeconomic status of people associated with unorganized value chain. This is achieved through skilling interventions, facilitating wage/ self-employment and entrepreneurship by bringing together all the stakeholders: large, small and medium enterprises, corporates, government, individuals and educational institutions.
