From a rag picker to a job creator; he fought for dignity of labor and now supports over 160 families!

“Never settle for anything that you do by force; always explore and bring a change!’ One person’s good deeds are many families’ daily bread. That is the story of this Ragpicker, Jaiprakash Chaudhary who started off with earning 20Rs for himself and now he feeds over 160 families. Know the 23 years of his journey transforming as a labourer to the man who employs over 160 making 11lakhs profits!

Former rag picker, Jaiprakash Chaudhary, nick-named as ‘Santu’, began life about 2 decades ago, just scrounging for recyclables in the dumps. We travel back to 1994 to when he began selling the useful things out of the dump. He faced a lot of discrimination but his determination was not just at a personal level; the country’s poverty kept him going!

A roadside shop he established in 1996, in Raja Bazar Juggi in New Delhi where he collected dry waste from trash seekers and re-sold them. This marked his stepping stones to establishing the association of Rag pickers in 1999 called ‘Safai Sena’ with the help of an  NGO, Chintan Environmental Research, and Action Group that believes in creating a dignified and a respectable life to the rag-pickers.

In 2012, Santu’s dreams were on a bigger spectrum as he established the waste segregation centre in Sikandarpur, Ghaziabad which was situated away from human settlements. He later went on to centres near the New Delhi Railway Station, where 160 people work for him. This means eradication of poverty to over 160 families!
