how it works

Migrants Resilience Collaborative (MRC) is a grassroots-led multi-stakeholder collaborative of nonprofit, philanthropic, and private sector actors focused on ensuring safety, security, and mobility for vulnerable internal migrants.

MRC aims to strengthen social protection systems in India and other part of South and Southeast Asia.

We have a two-pronged strategy:


First, we work to implement last-mile delivery systems, ensuring the most vulnerable migrants have access to existing protections.

Systems Change

Second, we change the systems to work better for all migrants by supporting the government to strengthen infrastructure and increasing incentives and accountability for industry actors.
