Health and Preventive Care for Mineworkers, India

by Gramin Vikas Vigyan Samiti (Gravis)

In our efforts to draw greater attention to the appalling condition of child laborers in the mines of Jodhpur, our Research Associate, Hayden Kantor, recently wrote an op-ed article on this topic. It appeared in two American newspapers on 18 November 2005: The Raleigh News & Observer and the Dallas Morning News. Attached is the text of article from the News and Observer.
