Challenge

There are thousands of child labourers in North Karnataka region especially girls. They are prone to exploitation, abuse and vulnerability. Girl child trafficking, child marriage and devadasi (temple prostitution) system, etc., are very prevalent in the rural villages and urban slums of North Karnataka region. The majority of the school dropout children are girls, who eventually end up as child labourers.

Solution

The project intends to rescue and educate 100 girl child labourers through education sponsorship. The funds received through the project will be utilized to meet the school fees, uniforms, nutritious food, school bags, notebooks, etc. Those children who need institutional care as the last option will be admitted to boarding centres. BREADS has four rehabilitation centres in North Karnataka namely, DB Gulbarga, DB Yadgir, DB Deodurga, Don Bosco Hospet and DB Bidar.

Long-Term Impact

The project will change the lives of the girl children who were once denied the right to education and childhood. The project would explicitly benefit 100 rescued child labourers. The education of the girl children will change the community/family on a long term basis. If we are able to educate a girl child, it will change the family and society as a whole. It will also contribute to a child labour free society in many remote villages of North Karnataka.
