Be a Partner in Skilling 100 Ex-child Labourers

A microproject by New Life
Be a Partner in Skilling 100 Ex-child Labourers

Summary

The project aims to give income-generating skills to 100 dropped out, ex-child labourers who could not continue their studies. The children who are above the age of 14 will be trained. The training will give the children the bargaining power to negotiate their wages as they have a skill. This will improve the standards of living of these children and their families.

Challenge

The project will provide computer billing skill training to 100 dropped out/ex-child labourers above 14 years. Since 1998 New Life facilitates special schools for rescued child labourers. Approximately 40 children are financially supported each year since 2014. 1142 ex-child labourers were sent to regular schools till 2018. Some are weak in studies and don't cope up with others. These children drop out of schools and become labourers again. They are paid low wages, exploited and are abused

Solution

The project aims to conduct computer billing training to 100 children in 5 batches of 20 each for a month. New Life has succeeded in getting 77% of the project funded through Intel's Social Initiative Contest. We need to mobilise 23% of the budget i.e $900 by donations. The project will enhance the skills of 100 ex-child labourers. Employability of the children will increase. The training will give the children the bargaining power to negotiate their wages as they have a skill.

Long-Term Impact

The training given to the child labourers will have a long term impact on their wages and health. It will reduce the instances of child abuse both by the parents and employers. Also, financial indebtedness will reduce in the long run if the children are skilled. The standard of living will improve in the families of the ex-child labourers. Hence the community will have sustainable development in the long run.
