Thanks to years of work by Centre for Civil Society, an Atlas Network partner in India, a law protecting street vendors like Dinesh has made it easier for him to make a living without fear of harassment. And today, Dinesh is even part of a committee that oversees matters affecting sidewalk traders, footpath dukanders—whatever local name is used for mobile street businesses. The law is on his side. "I feel empowered," Dinesh says. "And now with the support of other vendors, I too have a voice in the system."
