About this Speaker

A Nursing professional and labour rights enthusiast, Rajeshwari, 27 years, works as a mill welfare officer. A resident of PonniMandhurai, Dindigul District, she completed a nursing assistant course, after her post-graduation in Public administration. After having worked with the UNICEF survey team on ICDS nutrition, began working as a nurse. By 2017, while working as a nurse with the welfare officer, she was made responsible for addressing issues of more than 1,500 labourers during the night shift. An avid speaker, Rajeshwari has raised her voice about the health and sanitation of the mill workers who often don’t have proper toilet facilities. An active participant of Gethu Group, a worker led think tank, she credits the group for having increased her knowledge about Labour Rights and helping her value her role as a supporter and voice for the thousands of mills workers, whom she supports.
