Working for the Women in Informal Employment: Globalizing and Organizing (WIEGO) helping with a project with waste pickers in Delhi, India, I met Shashi Pandit and Rolando Politi. They both introduced me to their organization AIKMM: ALL INDIA KABADI MAZDOOR MAHASANGH.
I decide to help Shashi documenting AIKMM because they are an organization that works to uphold the principles of social equality, justice, and a toxic-free environment. The mission they have is to advocate for pro-people changes in policy making and to empower waste-collector communities through organization building, mass mobilization, and targeted research, so that they can live a dignified life with social justice, livelihood and basic needs security. We strongly support their rights to education with equity, health facilities, as well as for the protection of the environment and toxic-free material consumption.
