The Start ! Work with Child Labour projects Started an youth lead organization called Students for Child Rights (SCR) to eradicate domestic child labour Through SCR, we did rescue operations to help the children at risk The organization got good response, with wide publicity and open support by a national media (ndtv) and a local channel (Tv9), many youth volunteers started to join the campaign. In less than a year, we had more than 2000 volunteers joining the campaign As the required amendment was made .i.e. including domestic child labour into the 1986 child labour prohibition and regulation act, the campaign slowly has become dormant The campaign was culminated in 2007 by organizing a National Conference on Domestic Child Labour. The conference was organized with support of Oxfam India, Hyderabad office. Around 200 students from 40 reputed institutions had attended the conference. The conference emphasized the utilization of the amendments and the key stake holders responsible for its successful implementation.
