They are neither laborers who require supervision and monitoring to ensure efficient production; nor are they self-employed, self-exploiting, small-scale producers.<br />These are people working with a motivation, born out of a sense of belonging to a shared community, which is very much their own, for which they are collectively responsible. <br />It is this feeling that engenders a deep sense of self-respect and dignity among the citizens of Anandwan.<br />
