Basic literacy project
to prevent child labour
Surat (Gujarat) and Pahassaur (Haryana).
Child workers aged 3 to 16.
SECTOR OF ACTIVITY
Due to the fact that in India education is not compulsory before 6 years of age and due to the extreme poverty of brickworks families in the slums, every member of the family is forced to work in order to survive, regardless of their age. Almost 100% of children in these communities are at risk of starting to work from the age of three, and never attending to school.
At itwillbe.org we work to prevent child labour in the 15 brick factories of Pahassaur and 5 shantytowns of Surat, through basic literacy projects, accompanied by specific social work with families to raise awareness about the importance of education.
