In India, 80 percent of all people in the workforce are in the informal sector, meaning they do not have job security or steady work. LabourNet is an organization in India that provides key training and education to help people in the informal sector get the skills they need to increase their employability or start their own businesses. We invest in LabourNet because we believe that opening pathways to opportunity can help improve the lives of families living in urban poverty.
