The Freelance Interviewers' Relief Fund

THE FREELANCE INTERVIEWERS' RELIEF FUND

Market Research in India is predominantly Face to Face and relies on freelance interviewers for collecting data to provide insights to a vast variety of corporates, government and social bodies. A large number of these freelance interviewers depend on the earnings from this work to support their families.

Amid the countrywide lockdown due to the breakout of the COVID-19, there is complete stoppage of Face to Face data collection and hence a number of our interviewers are impacted and have no resources to meet their basic sustenance expenses.

To raise funding from the wider Marketing Research, Analytics and Insights ecosystem, MRSI has partnered with Habitat for Humanity India to set up a relief fund for helping selected freelance interviewers nominated by our member agencies in this crisis.

The fund was created around 10th May and ran till end of June 2020.

Over 200 individuals and corporates contributed to the fund and a total of over 75 lakhs was collected.

This was deployed as a cash transfer to over 3600 interviewers selected by MRSI member agencies.

The MRSI would like to thank all the donors and our charity partner Habitat for Humanity India for their contribution and support to our interviewers during these difficult times.
