Summary

The Proposed project is to attain 100% literacy among children and provide life oriented education to prevent children from becoming child labourers in the target villages. The beneficiary children are aged 10-12 from quarry workers in Polur block, Thiruvannamalai District, Tamilnadu, India. Within 2 years, we will provide education to the children through 5 education centers in the selected villages from 1st to 7th standard level and for their livelihood we also included life skill education

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The children of stone quarries workers are in pathetic situation. The children are studying in nearby schools. But dropout rates are very high comparatively with other communities. Poverty forces, many families to send their children to work. Because of heavy workload, parents are unable to provide food for their children in morning and night. So for these children, eating sufficient food is one of the problems. So, their educational levels become decreased gradually and run-away from schools

How will this project solve this problem?

Organize support services to help children in the fulfillment of their basic rights such as: Education, health and recreation; Provide facilities for skill acquisition and vocational training;

Potential Long Term Impact

Children will be enrolled in the mainstream schools and they should have completed at least 7th standard level without break. School dropout rates of children will be minimized. The impact of the project will be creating more awareness among their parents and the community. Improved health status through the recreation activities and providing nutritious food. Gained knowledge and experience through job oriented training. Children's self help groups will be participated in the local activities.
