Our Projects

A Nationwide Network

Movement for Scavenger Community is currently building and maintaining a nationwide network of the scavenger community. Our goal is to connect the communities in different areas of the country to enable them to support and strengthen the community from within. For that reason, MSC establishes selfhelp-centers in selected communities, in which the members can establish stronger ties to each other and support each other to improve their social and economic conditions. MSC studies the specific structures of the area and works in close cooperation with the communities to adjust its work to the given circumstances.

Community Centers as Hubs for Self Help

MSC establishes and maintains self-help centers in different communities all over India. After the establishment, these centers are run by the communities. In this way, MSC aims to strenghthen collaboration within the community and encourage the local people to develop solutions for their problems. Our team-members serve as a reference and contact in case any support from outside is needed. We also check on the members of the curating commitees regularly to suggest further ways of improvement. The community centers have been equipped with libraries, computers, printers and other teaching materials, to provide the necessary foundation for modern education and opportunities for self-improvement. The projects and programms of the centers are provided by voluntary workers from within and without the community. If you also want to take part as a volunteer in one of our locations, feel free to join us.

We aim to spread our centers all over the country to create a big network of reciprocal support. Find out more about our centers:
