Challenge

As per the national census 2011, 10 million children in India between 5-14 years work as child labour. They are often employed in hazardous small scale industries, roadside eateries and as domestic help. Long hours of work, often under pitiable conditions keep them away from the happy childhood that they deserve. Dropping out of school and losing touch with education means that these children have no way at all of building a better future for themselves.

Solution

The project focuses on helping parents and communities understand the ill effects of child labour and why children need to go to school and not to work. They also help them understand how education would ultimately benefit children and help them build a better life. The team also works towards identifying children who are in child labour and helping them re-enroll or get back to school.

Long-Term Impact

The objective of the project is to ensure that all 800 children from the project do not work as child labour but can go to school. The project also aims at changing basic attitudes and mindsets so that entire villages can be completely child labour free and can remain so permanently.
