There are over 750 million domestic migrant workers globally, including 200 million in India. 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 or domestic migrants. Established in 2020 at the height of the COVID pandemic, MRC has worked with over 4 million migrant households to date. By 2028, MRC aims to help 15 million migrant workers.
GDI has been a strategic partner since the launch of MRC, providing ongoing strategy support toward systems change, and complementing leadership capacity via 2-3 ongoing full-time senior level secondments in leadership roles covering general management, strategy, innovation, technology and operations.
