People Helped


Children are supported to break free from the generation-to-generation cycle of poverty and illiteracy caused by indentured caste-based brick kiln labour. The project works to uplift and develop the whole community, as without this the lives of children cannot be improved. Activities include: Non-formal early years childhood education classes to support children aged 0-6 in language development and socialisation; Non-formal education classes for primary school-aged children in key subjects to enable them to keep up with the school curriculum; older students are supported to stay in high quality residential hostels
