  1. 1. The Problem: Child Labour
  2. 2. The Causes : <ul><li>Common causes of child labour are poverty, parental illiteracy, social apathy, lack of education and exposure, exploitation of cheap and unorganized labor. </li></ul><ul><li>Today “Child Labour ” does not remain a mere means of economic exploitation but has become a necessity due to the economic needs of the parents and the child himself. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Effects / Consequences <ul><li>According to sociologists, development workers, medical professionals and educationists “Child labour” is a derogatory term which translates into child exploitation and inhumanity . </li></ul><ul><li>They have identified child labour as harmful and hazardous to the child’s development needs, both mental and physical.  </li></ul>
  4. 4. The Thought <ul><li>The future of a community is in the well being of its children. The above fact is beautifully expressed by Wordsworth in his famous lines “ child is father of the man ”. </li></ul><ul><li>So it becomes imperative for the health of a nation to protect its children from premature labour which is hazardous to their mental, physical, educational and spiritual development needs. </li></ul><ul><li>It is urgently required to save children from the murderous clutches of social injustice and educational deprivation, and ensure that they are given opportunities for healthy, normal and happy growth.   .   </li></ul>
  5. 5. The Action Plan: <ul><li>By forming teams of 5 students each under the effective guidance of 3 teachers and supervision of the Principal madam we identified ten children who were engaged in child labour . </li></ul><ul><li>Our primary objective was to ensure that the child is given education , and in the long run totally freed from the evil clutches of “ Child Labour”. </li></ul><ul><li>However , we felt that if we ask the parents of the children to stop sending them for work it may work temporarily but it may fail in the long run since it would affect the income of the family which they may not be able to bear. Also initially the parents may not be confident of our long term objectives and there could be lack of trust for us in their minds. </li></ul>
  6. 6. The Action Plan: <ul><li>So, as a long term solution to ensuring that the child is never subjected to the hardships of child labour and in order to ensure total upliftment of the family as a whole we decided to support all the ten families by providing food & clothing till such time they themselves feel that they are not in need of any help. </li></ul><ul><li>We asked all the children of our school to save a handful of wheat & rice everyday for 15 days . Also we asked them to generously donate clothes & other items which they did gracefully . By this method we were able to collect food grains which will allow us to take care of the ten families for the entire year. </li></ul>
  7. 7. The Action Plan: <ul><li>We met the parents of these children and explained them our objectives. With some initial hiccups they agreed to cooperate with us and send their children to attend school in evening. </li></ul><ul><li>We provided the children with books and our teachers and team members are conducting individual and personalized coaching of these children everyday for two hours after school in the evening which will continue endlessly . </li></ul>
  8. 8. Personalised Coaching Of Children
  9. 9. Vidya Niketan Team Transforming Lives
  10. 10. Service to humanity Service to God
  11. 11. Destiny Is a matter of choice not chance Proved
  12. 12. Our Reward: <ul><li>The satisfaction of having contributed </li></ul><ul><li>and </li></ul><ul><li>being instrumental in some form </li></ul><ul><li>in bringing change in the lives </li></ul><ul><li>of not just ten children but ten families </li></ul><ul><li>and </li></ul><ul><li>thereby redefining the destinies of </li></ul><ul><li>many a future generations </li></ul><ul><li>to come. </li></ul>
