Special Seminar for Parents of Child Labor (2 Day)
In India, the problem of child labour is well recognized. Children are engaged in various types of work including those that are classified as ‘hazardous’. Although there are inter-state and inter-regional variations in India, the factors that generate child labour in general, and hazardous child labour in particular, are basically similar and revolve around poverty, lack of access to quality education, demographic pressure, social exclusion etc. Though every child has the right to get Education, they are denied of the same and at very tender age are forced / compelled to work.
The CBWE has chalked out a unique programme targeting the Parents of Child Labour and Child Labour themselves. The main objective of the programme is to make the parents of child labour realize that education of their child should be given top priority. As well as make the child realize that going to work at this tender age will definitely hamper their physical and psychological health. After conducting the programme, the Education Officers have continuous follow up with the Transit Schools to ensure that theses children are enrolled in the main stream of education. The Education Officers have a wide network with NGOs and other social organizations to ensure that working children discontinue their work and go to Transit schools.
This programme aims at :
Motivating a broad alliance of partners to acknowledge and act against Child Labour.
