SEWA Cooperative Federation recognised by WEF as one of India’s last-mile Covid-19 responders

The SEWA Cooperative Federation, Self-Employed Women’s Association (SEWA) in India, has been recognised by the World Economic Forum (WEF) as one of India’s last-mile Covid-19 responders. The list includes local organisations and social entrepreneurs which have, according to the WEF, demonstrated that swift action in four priority areas can enhance reach and scale in the difficult to reach ‘last mile’. The WEF believes that the efforts of organisations such as SEWA Cooperative Federation and its sister cooperative organisations can provide valuable lessons for other regions which are fighting new waves of the Covid-19. Indian ICMIF member National Insurance VimoSEWA Cooperative Ltd is one of the SEWA sister cooperative organisations.
