Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2005
This description of Rajiv Khandelwal's work was prepared when Rajiv Khandelwal was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2005.
Rajiv Khandelwal’s Aajeevika Bureau (Livelihood Bureau) is among the first attempts in north India to provide support services to the millions of unskilled laborers and migrants who seasonally move across the country in search of work. The bureau seeks to protect the livelihoods and dignity of these migrants and reinforce their valid identity as legitimate contributors to the nation’s economy.
