National Child Labour Project (NCLP) School:
In India, the National Child Labour Project is the central programme aimed at achieving this goal. This paper examines the operation of the project in the state of Tamilnadu using original survey data collected. The survey reveals a number of promising findings, including high rates of provision of both midday meals and free learning materials to students, as well as evidence of adequate schooling quality and availability. However, areas of concern were also identified, including irregularities in stipend payments to parents of child labourers who send their children to school and inadequate provision of free Education services to children who attend school rather than work. These operational short-comings revealed by the survey reduce the incentive and ability parents have to send their children to school rather than work and, accordingly, undermine the effectiveness of the project. The program is targeted for the children between 7-14 years old.
We are running five Child Labour Schools with the support National Child Labour Project. In this project we have received manpower support from Department. We are running in the objectives of this project prevents children from working and creates a suitable environment to give them education and also to protect child rights.
About the School
This School aims to procure some apples as part of the NEEDS Nutrition Food Program (NFP). We want to provide our children with nutritious food items such as fruits to facilitate their physical and mental development.
In addition to academics, we also encourage our children to take up outdoor activities like games and physical activities as well as arts like Drawing, Music and Dance. Your support will help us enrich and empower children in need and distress and help them pursue their life goals with confidence.
Ever since we started taking comprehensive care of these children, we have been pursuing one single goal – make them good citizens of the nation. Accordingly, all the basic needs are being met on par with other children who have a proper family backing. We provide them good food, clothing and recreation facilities.
Some of our visitors and donors spend good time with the children and teach them skills like Dance, Painting and Music. Many children are doing well in academics and co-curricular programs. They have been participating in cultural and sports events in school, and also in district and State Level. Most of the children do not have a good grounding in Tamil and English. We are also trying hard to make our children speak in English to gain fluency. This will give them lot of confidence while interacting with people inside and outside the school.
