Challenge

According to the ILO Child Labor Survey, out of a total of 40 million children aged 5-14 years in Pakistan, 3.3 million are victim to Child Labor. Out of this, 264,000 children are working in 'personal and social services' being victims to Domestic Child Labor, the most hidden, invisible and inaccessible of all child workers. This project aims to open as many drop in centers as possible for these victims.

Solution

This project aims to provide aid through non formal education and training to child labor victims in order to enroll them back to school or encourage them to join technical jobs. The drop in centers are designed to provide children with accelerated literacy programs, technical vocational training programs (for older children), health care, life skills and physiological counselling.

Long-Term Impact

The projects aims to educate and assist over 500 child labor victims, allowing them to enroll in schools or join more technical jobs.
