Please turn on closed captions for subtitles on this video!
The ARISE team in India organised an exchange between the waste workers in Shimla and Vijaywada and the alliance of SPARC, NSDF and Mahila Milan. Supported by ARISE and funded by GCRF, a group of waste workers, both men and women, from Shimla and Vijaywada visited Mumbai and spent a week with Mahila Milan. Over the course of 4 days, they visited Dharavi, Indian oil slum relocation colony, and Milan Nagar to hear how women came together to build and sustain their grassroots movement named Mahila Milan. We present to you some snippets of the exchange.
