Stop. Protect, care and educate identified seasonal migrated child labor at 11 brick industries in Pedakonduru Village Choutuppal Mandal, Yadadri district India. Operate a seasonal work-site school for 6 months every year to facilitate vocational Skills training, primary education, and health care with nutritional meal to 60 identified child labor. Educate seasonal migrated families and obtain linkages and support from government and other organisations to stop child labor in the area.
200 families from Odhisha state are migrating on seasonal base for a period of 8 months to work in 11 brick industries situated at Choutuppal , Telangana state. Major risk is the children also engaged to in the brick kilns to get income to their families. Every year government caught the children working in the brick kilns but not able to stop them due to no school available to teach the children in their mother tongue language Thus the children are at risk, not grownup and become unhealthy
Difficult to stop migration of the families but will prevent child labor through to run a seasonal work site school to facilitate job oriented skills training, primary education in their mother tongue language with nutritional meal and health care. Also motivate the families not to engage their children in works and care them properly. Since no organization come forward to stop child labor in the area through this school we are able to get linkages and collaborations to prevent child labor .
Completely prevent child labor in the brick industries to bring awareness in the migrated families, continuously to operate seasonal work-site school for the children every year and get support and linkages from government and other like-minded organizations. The migrated families' children would be safe and secured through the school and protected with care and education. Elder children would trained in job oriented skills to get self employment in their state. Reduced child migration!
