National Urban Livelihoods Mission (NULM)

With the rapid urbanization in India, there is a high rate of un-skilled and semi-skilled labor migrating from rural areas. The migration of this demography has led to a boom in low paid jobs and creation of a huge unorganized sector.The situation is more tough for women as the service sector work force participation in India for women is 20% for females as against 92% for US, indicating large gender gap in high-skill jobs.National Urban livelihood Mission (NULM) was launched to reduce issues around livelihood for the urban poor.
