Empowerment of Migrant Workers and Good Governance


Western Orissa specially some pockets of Boudh and Bolangir are migration prone area .People   from the particular area move to different States in search of livelihood .A major portion go to brick Klin of Andhrapradesh and Chennai .Youth migration in search of better livelihood is also a matter of concern .Migration can be said as the best coping mechanism as long as corruption, exploitation, atrocities, injustice are not associated with it.
