This study has been conceptualized on the premise that civil society interventions are required to ameliorate the existing status of bonded workers in district Umerkot. In the absence of institutional mechanisms, there is a need for civil society actors to come forward to address the issues of bonded sharecroppers. Despite the extent of impoverishment, there are few NGOs that have been working in the district and almost none concerning the vital issues of bonded tenants. The basic purpose is to prepare a ‘situational analysis’ of the existing status of bonded sharecroppers in the district. The findings of this report are anticipated to assist the Rural Support Programmes Network (RSPN) and Thardeep Rural Development Program (TRDP) in developing a work plan to initiate development interventions in the selected villages.
