What can be the best gift for a child. It can be “Education”. If you gift education to a child- you just light-em up a lamp to build a nation.
We, India is the world largest democratic country with 1.2 billion population believe in secularism- unity in diversity is the main feature of our nation. We are the fastest growing economy country where liberalization, privatization, and globalization promotes a high rate of migration. Migration for livelihood is marked high in middle class and lower class population. Every year one or the other Indian sub-continents hits by natural disaster, floods, droughts which increases internal migration and it becomes the cause of the increase in child labors in the country. There is no exact figure exists on how many children are the drop out from school every year. But it is expected to be 1.3% out of 123,615,800 total primary school-age population. A survey found that out of every 100 children who are enrolled in schools, only 72 can complete class VIII.
According to Census 2011, there are 37 million out of school children between the age group of 15-18 years. Out of these, 22 million are engaged in work taking up adult economic roles and 9 million get married before their legal age. It is, therefore, evident that if children are not in the fold of education they tend to be exposed to vulnerabilities of child labor and child marriage.
These vulnerable children are also objected of Trafficking in Persons for the purpose of forced prostitution, bonded labors and organ selling. The major barrier for a child to drop out of school are as follows;
- Gender discrimination
- Natural Disaster
- Poor implementation of Government Educational projects.
- Lack of trained teacher
- Overcrowded schools
Address to the problem, Talaash Association has designed and developed a project to:
- Identify the children who are the drop out of school
- Mobilize the family, community & child
- Work to bridge the gap – vulnerability to enrolment in formal education.
We are ensuring sustainability in the life of a child of education by:
- empowering family,
- organizing training for the teacher,
- conducting psychosocial counseling
- creating high impact awareness and
- Building child networks & advocacy.
