Urban Livelihoods and Nurturing Care projects (uLiNCs)
ULiNCs is an international collaborative that supports women working in the informal economy to sustain their livelihoods, protect their health and nurture their children. There are a number of ways in which the collaborative hopes to achieve this. AeT has focused the majority of its efforts on the goals of creating safer spaces and enabling mothers to be close to their children.

Urban Design and Public Space
AeT collaborates with informal workers and allied professionals in order to develop inclusive urban spaces. The goal of AeTs work is to empower the working poor to become co-developers in their working environments. We advocate investment in urban planning and design interventions, and deep consultative and participatory processes. We believe these approaches can set a trajectory for meaningful socio-economic development for informal workers operating in public spaces while enhancing the public domain through facilitating better urban management; and thus leading to an improved urban experience for all.
