Help child labourers get back into education
Donations to this NGO have 50% tax exemption.
53% of children in India under the age of 10 do not receive any formal education. In the majority of cases this is because families simply cannot afford to send their children to school. Children who do manage to receive non-formal education are treated unequally and fall behind when it comes to job opportunities compared with students who attend formal school.
Since 2008, we have been running the National Child Labour School. The school was initiated under the Government of India's National Child Labour Programme (NCLP) and prioritises placing child labourers into formal schools. All children receive monthly allowances, vocational training, and midday meals. We also provide regular health check-ups.
From our last group, 16 students were tutored and admitted into formal school. Rs. 1200 is all that it takes to give a child labourer a new positive direction.
