“Child Labourers in Small Factories and Domestic worker in Dhaka city”

 

Bangladesh has a population of more than 150 million of people of which about half are children. A large number of children (about 7.4 million) are engaged in work due to poverty who are deprived of their survival, development, protection and participation as stated at UNCRC. “Reaching out to Child Labour in Small Factories and Domestic worker in Dhaka city” project aims to increase options for alternative job opportunities for child labourers through education, vocational training, reduction of risk at working place and social mobilization.

The project provides non-formal education, treatment, psychosocial & recreational support to the working children through 16 learning centers. It also creates alternative job opportunities for them by ensuring skills/vocational & capacity building training. It provides opportunity for them to contribute in their individual development through participating in the center management through JMC. The project staffs ensure regular attendance of the children to the learning center by visiting their work places and homes. Individual contact helps motivating the employers as well as the parents of the working children to have a realization about the hazards of child labour and importance of education in the lives of the working children. In addition, awareness raising campaign organized by the project helps sensitizing a large number of local communities to create safety net for the child labourers in the local areas so that they can have access to the support of the learning centers besides their work and become able to choice alternative livelihood options for them.
