Summary

The project works with child laborers who live on construction sites with their parents and are migrants. These children have no access to education and are living in hazardous environment at sites. We aim to connect these children back to mainstream education by providing informal education &basic nutrition support.Every year we support around 250 children & to date we have enrolled more than 1,703 child laborer in our CFS classes and have steered around 195 of these children to formal school

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Today in India, 250 million children are working to support their families' meager incomes. Gujarat ranks ninth among India's 28 states in child labor. Often employed as domestic servants, tea-stall workers, rag pickers, vegetable sellers and at roadside dhabas, these children are deprived of basic education and suffer long working hours, abuse, torment and the loss of their childhood. Often they are abused at home as well as work, without refuge and with little hope for the future.

How will this project solve this problem?

Through an integrated programme: i) providing non-informal education within the child's working day ii) addressing factors creating/sustaining child labour, such as low parental incomes and imparting skills to parents iii) nutritional support

Potential Long Term Impact

Potentially, change the course of the lives of child labourers otherwise with no alternative for education. By teaching literacy and providing a chance of formal education, they have a chance of a future and to escape a vicious circle of poverty.
