A mineworker's life is a lonely and treacherous journey!

The mineworkers' life often starts and ends in a dilipidated and impoverished home.

The mines are often the only hope for livelihood to the drought-affected desert communities in Western Rajasthan

GRAVIS & HEDCON have intervened to
improve the living conditions of the miners

The Schools for the miners children
have given them a new ray of hope

Medical camps are conducted
regularly for the mineworkers.

Vocational trainings are given to provide
lifeskills to the miner SHG members

A member of a mineworkers union is
presenting his case at a meeting.

Cooperative stores are opened to ensure
financial security to the miners families.
