Help Us End Child Slavery in Bihar

A microproject by People First Educational Charitable Trust
Vetted

Summary

South Bihar is a hotspot for child trafficking, yet very few organisations are working here to fight for children sold as child slaves, who are forced to work in terrible conditions for up to 18 hours a day. Rescue Junction has been at the forefront of tackling this problem once rescuing over 130 children at one time, from Bangle making factories . But we need some extra help in making sure that these kids never return to child labour by offering them more support and help with education.

Challenge

Child trafficking ( slavery) is a huge problem in BIhar. It is an organised business. Rescue Junction is working with the Police and local government to fight these traffickers and those who would do harm to children for personal profit and gain. Over 40 individuals are in Jail for trafficking and child abuse thanks to the work of the dedicated staff at the centre. This project will enable us to offer more direct support to the victims, helping one child at a a time, to a whole new future.

Solution

We need to continue our efforts rescuing child labourers but we also need to support and help the child return to mainstream education. This project will provide financial support for books and school costs etc along with increased personal support and working with parents helping to ensure exploitation is replaced by education. The average age of the hundreds of children Rescue Junction has rescued is just 10.9 years of age. With your help we can make all the difference to children at risk .

Long-Term Impact

It is the aim of the trust to engage with the police, railway authorities, the judicial system and local government in helping to provide a child safety network in the district. This has the potential to help thousands of kids.
