Child Labour

V-Prompt is dedicated to making child labour socially and culturally unacceptable. We work with state authorities and civil society organizations to free children engaged in such labour, and have been instrumental in the creation of a national child protection system.

The Foundation’s further aim is to ensure that no child remains deprived of education as children are the future of the nation. The Right to Education act has been implemented in both the country and the state, and we are working to make sure that its benefits reach the children engaged in such labour

The parents and guardians of poor children often force them to work, even though this is not permitted by law, and child labour is increasing . Without enough money to raise and educate their children they send them to work. Many of these children work in adverse areas such as cracker factories, domestic help, worker in local tea shops and other places. Not only are they deprived of an education, but they are losing their precious childhood

Citizens of India should come forward to check such activities. Childhood is the most innocent stage in a human life. It is that phase of life where a child is free from all the tensions and can look forward to fun-loving, play and learning new things. We all should move forward so that we can bring smiles to many faces while making this world a more beautiful place for a child to live in.
