Child Labour

India is home to over 70 million child-workers and many of these children work in the home-based craft industry. Parents are forced, out of desperation, to make their children work because they need the money.

But our project team are working hard to stop this happening and make a big impact in the fight against child labour. Our project is working at a local level to develop and test a model designed to eradicate child labour. This has included supporting bridge schools to give children a route back into formal education.

The project is benefiting around 15,000 people and the knowledge gained will also be shared on a wide scale.
