New SCN Ministry to Marginalized Women in Ranchi
The Eastern Province initiated a new ministry to the marginalized women in Ranchi. It is a national concern that women from Jharkhand migrating to cities across the country for domestic work are being oppressed, trafficked and abused.
On April 10, SCNs Shalini D’Souza, Rekha Kerketta and Shobhita Panthaladickal will initiate this ministry in collaboration with the National Movement for Domestic Workers in Ranchi. This program will target domestic workers who are already registered under the movement. There are 400 children domestic workers under the age of 14 and 15000 adult domestic workers in Ranchi alone.
