Challenge

4256 children (age 6-14) from poor economic and social backgrounds are engaged as Child labourers in the ancilliary heavy industries: automobile units, wind mill erection plants and quarrying industries in the Trichirappalli Town. The industrial growth in and around the Town in the past 2 decades has its negative impact on the children. They are paid low wages and are exploited as their parents are less educated and have no means to support the educational needs of their children.

Solution

The project aims to provide: Orientation to identified child labourers; Introduction of proposed outcomes to parents; Workshop on evils of child labour; Admission to regular schools. The identified children will be admitted to the special schools after the parents are counselled and convinced. These children will be infused with confidence, motivation and desire to continue their studies. The motivated, eligible children are then admitted to regular schools, supported and coached in the evenings

Long-Term Impact

The education given to the child labourers will have a long term impact on their wages and health. Also the financial indebtedness will reduce if the children are educated. Hence the community will have a sustainable development in the long run.
