Requested bySocial Awareness for Democratic Art and Research (SAFDAR)
Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?
Title of the project is: A study on health and working conditions of female labourers engaged in stone crusher industry with specific reference to Ranchi district of Jharkhand state.
Jharkhand is rich in mineral resources but with poor inhabitants, though it cradles rich industrial houses like Tatas, Jindal, Abhijeet Group et al.
The state is stands out in the country due to its rich flora and fauna, hills and dales. However, the scenic beauty hills are now being turned into ruins, courtesy the stone crushers which are churning out stone chips for construction materials. The workers here are mostly women. Literacy rate is very low among rural women. The Census 2011 puts the overall literacy rate of rural women in Jharkhand at 49 per cent. Moreover, their poverty forces them to take up hazardous works.
