Speak the Cause

A project by Tiljala SHED

We are the bridge between the societies that are willing to help members of the rag picker community.
It is a social impact initiative by a group of like-minded change makers from different walks of life under the umbrella of Tiljala SHED to focus on the holistic development of rag pickers and other vulnerable sections of the society.

Rag picking is not a profession that anyone would like to take up given a choice that those lakhs of people who are a part of community never had, never have a choice. With 'Speak the Cause', they shall have a choice. Story of each rag picker is different but the story of their suffering is not. Each of them struggle to meet their basic needs of life - food, clothes, home.

The story of their suffering doesn't end here, it is only the beginning. They neither have job security, salary or dignity. They are exposed to cuts, infections, respiratory diseases, humiliation, sexual abuse and harassment on the streets to add to misery of their lives. We at 'Speak the Cause' works towards the development of rag pickers, we collect the resource to bring change in their life in what way we can.

We are the bridge between the societies that are willing to help members of the rag picker community. Over the time, we have been engaged with various community activities and have found overwhelming support for our cause. To mention a few events that we organized are – Community Profiling, Dine N Dialogue, Eid Milan, Fit Club, Story Telling Session, Legal Aid Clinic, Livelihood Clinic, Health Clinic, Book Collection Drive and many more

We don't plan to stop and we shall live and change the dynamic of this community slowly and eventually and we shall count on you for help too in the future to be part of this change with us.
