Challenge

In India, the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009 (RTE Act), promises education for all children up to age 14. However, in reality, about 40% of children from migrant worker families lack access to education, whether in their native villages or destination cities, according to a UNICEF study. Migration disrupts their schooling, often leading to child labor. This situation demands urgent attention to ensure the education and well-being of migrant workers' children.

Solution

Children who read more learn better and are more likely to succeed at school as well as in life. This project addresses the challenge of limited education access for migrant workers' children in labor colonies by establishing 100 libraries. These libraries will be equipped with a diverse range of STEM and storybooks, fostering a love for learning and providing vital educational resources.

Long-Term Impact

By providing migrant workers' children with access to engaging STEM and storybooks, they will develop the habit of reading, which, in turn, will encourage further emotional and intellectual development.
