    Through Unity We Gain Strength is a short, moving video documenting the story of Rekha, a woman who inherited her family’s food stall in a marketplace in India. Learn how she and other food vendors like her came to join NASVI, and how this membership has subsequently empowered them. NASVI, short for the National Association of Street Vendors of India, is supported by our client the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES), which is a German political organisation that assists communities around the world in promoting democracy and political education.

    The video follows Rekha’s journey from personal hardship and struggle with police brutality and discrimination against street vendors, to her appointment as NASVI’s Market Committee Secretary, and ultimately her jubilation when NASVI’s hard work paid off with a change in the law that gave institutional power to street vendors.
