Who we are

The Migrant Assistance and Information Network (MAIN) is the outcome of the felt-need for a concerted, collective and innovative response to reach out to the distress migrant workers; inter- state and intra-state. Being essentially a partnership model, MAIN would work in collaboration with individuals, NGOs / CSOs / CBOs, institutions, religious congregations, dioceses, networks, etc. at various levels. It will work closely with state governments by developing a replicable and sustainable model of Accompanying, Serving and Advocating for the cause of distressed migrants. MAIN visualizes itself becoming a state-run programme eventually to address the issues of distress migrants in the long run across India.


Accompanying distress migrants to live with dignity by building a caring humanity.

To Accompany, Serve and Advocate for Distress Migrants.
