Mumbai Food Project, an endeavour by Pratham Mumbai Education Initiative

Mumbai Food Project, an initiative by Pratham, released a short video based on the current scenario surrounding the Unlock 1.0. Although Mumbai is opening up, the struggle for food and resources among daily wagers and migrant workers still continues. On losing their means of livelihood, numerous daily wagers and migrant workers left the city, but many wait here, in this city of hopes and dreams.
The video captures a small girl and her sister Munni’s perspective, a daughter of a migrant labourer who dreams to achieve a respectable job in the Mumbai Police. She questions her dreams as the situation seems grim. With no employment, and insufficient food to survive, most of these families are returning to the hinterland.

This video calls out to every Mumbaikar, to unite and awaken the ever-so-celebrated Mumbai Spirit, for Munni and lakhs of migrants like her.
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the income of many daily wagers. Pratham Mumbai Education Initiative has started the Mumbai Food Project with the aim to combat the hunger crisis, with the help of volunteers, entrepreneurs, corporate leaders, and other partners. The Mumbai Food Project partnered with NGOs like Coro India, Stree Mukti Sanghatana, Mahila Rajsatta Andolan, Rationing Krutih Samiti, Nirman Majdoor Sanghatana, SHED, Mumbai Mobile Creches and Maharashtra Rajya Ghar Kamgar Union, and continues to provides meals and ration kits to the daily wage earners in the city struck by the lockdown.
The video has been curated by White Rivers Media.
