this is a template in which we want photographers to take photos of other innovations. Mansukhbhai has received national award by National Innovation Foundation at Presidential award function. Idea is to develop photo essays of innovators who have helped in eliminating child labour or enhancing income of their parents so that children are sent to school and not work. We are aware that technologies alone may not eliminate child labour but they can facilitate the conditions for that to happen, and in some cases help in elimination, as it happened in the present case. sristi invited photographers who wish to join hands in this effort.
