Child Labour is a continuing pre-dominant challenge in India. With more than 31 million children (est. 2017) “economically active” children, India currently has the highest number of children engaged in the work force in the world. Humana People to People India (HPPI), since 2015, has worked to get children of textile workers in Panipat, Haryana, out of the factories and enrolled back into schools. In January 2018, this initiative was expanded with the project “Children in the Forgotten Link of the Textile Value Chain”, that aspires to create a Child Labour Free Zone in Panipat, covering 2,439 households, which comprise approximately 10,000 people.

Any child that is out of school is vulnerable and at risk of exploitation through child labour. These risks can have an irreversible physical, psychological and moral impact on their development, mental health and well-being too. Therefore, the ‘Stop Child Labor’ project aims to identify all out-of-school children in the intervention area, and ensure they get enrolled into age appropriate educational or training facilities. A baseline survey with 4,148 children marked the beginning of the project. The findings of the survey revealed that 10.6% of the children in the sample are engaged in a working environment.

The identified children will be enrolled directly into Government Schools or alternately, be trained in HPPI’s Kadam Centres through the Kadam Programme and Girls Bridge Course; or through the newly established Sambhavna Programme, designed to accommodate adolescents from Grade VI to VIII.
