Summary

This project will provide hundreds of migrant child laborers in rural India with transportation from the brick kilns where they live and labor to public school.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Today, thousands of children in rural Haryana are working 14-16 hour days in dangerous brick kilns at the expense of attending school. As out-of-state migrants, these children are excluded from school incentive programs provided by the Indian government to local residents. Unable to afford school uniforms, fees, supplies and transportation, these children will be denied even the most basic levels of education and thus condemned to a life of subsistence labor and poverty.

How will this project solve this problem?

The project will eliminate this barrier to education by (a) mobilizing migrant families to enroll their children in school and (b) providing the children with 2 school uniforms, a book bag, shoes, tuition stipends and transportation (as needed).

Potential Long Term Impact

We believe education is not only a fundamental right, but is the most powerful catalyst for human development: children with even the most basic levels of education have better life options, earning potential and health, and raise healthier children.
