Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?
Labourconnect.org is a joint initiative of NASVI (National Association of Street Vendors of India), and NIDAN.
We at Labourconnect.org believe that we should not view this blue color jobs (informal sector workers) as nuisance but should be seen as an assets for job creation and helping our economy to grow.
For blue-collar workers such as drivers, maids, cooks, and construction workers etc, finding out about the jobs available with various employers is often considered to be an arduous task and the employers, too especially urban population, struggle and sometime they don’t even find a right person they intend to fill.
To minimize this gap NIDAN comes up with an idea of (Labour Connect).
Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!
Labourconnect.org is a portal using web based application software to connect unorganized blue color informal sector to organized sector for better job opportunity and platform for informal sector workers to increase their livelihood by the use of technology.
At the moment, we're focusing on Delhi NCR, Uttrakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Harayana and Bihar areas as our first phase of launch and soon we will enter to other states with the help of our partners NASVI and NIDAN.
It will help unorganised workers
For blue-collar workers such as drivers, receptionists, office assistants, etc, finding out about the jobs available with various employers is often an arduous task.
The employers, too, struggle to attract the right people for the various vacancies they intend to fill.
The present situation, however, will soon be a thing of the past. Labour Connect, a job portal developed mainly for unorganised workers and to bridge the large gap between the demand and supply of skilled manpower.
