Ending Child Labour Through Education

As I entered the class room all the kids shout good morning akka, which brings in great enthusiasm in you and make you to love what you are doing and moreover we got to see three new kids in our paathshaala which was even more motivating, they are mani, maheshwari, pawan and niveditha. Then me and my other co-mates were in thoughts what should we do, so that these kids enjoy as well as gain knowledge. So we started playing word building where we came to know about these kids knowledge and we were shocked. They were so good at it, and words were at the tip of their tongue. Then koushik took over the game and coordinated the kids with shroothi for the rest of the day and rest of us got engaged in painting chess board on the floor, about 10 chess boards we scaled and painted them which was a really fun filled job to do for the kids and the same was continued to the next day.

"Stop Child Labor " Education campaign waves at Bangalore slum Indian

Venue: South  India Date 21 may 2011 onwards My Experience Pallavi banerjee My campaigning experience was moving as well as quite surprising. As this was my first experience of visiting slum life I had my own set of expectations out of it. I was of the opinion that I will come across poverty, families where children are deprived of education because their parents do not have money to even afford food. But the reality was a bit different from my predefined notions. I realized that more than poverty, unawareness is the actual reason that is depriving the children of education. Not all of the homes where so poverty stricken that they cannot afford education. In fact some of them had luxuries like television, refrigerator and yet the children were not sent to school. This made me realize a bigger problem called child labor. Each of these families make their children work in shops or markets along with them so that they become a source of income. For them if a child is capable of earning

SCEAD foundation has a clear mission!

My name is Vladimir Soukup I came to SCEAD foundation from Czech Republic where I am studying international trade at University of Economics in Prague. Having a 3 years experience with leadership and management I was given a very important job description. My task was to help the founder clarify and set a clear mission for the organization so that the activities are focused and an increased impact is achieved in that particular area. Based on this mission the way to do it would be designed and concrete activities put in place.   To create this output was a very challenging goal we set. After many meetings that sometimes lasted to late at night we managed to make a progress. We were asking our selves WHY does the organization exist? What is its mission. I am more than happy that this is now clear. The mission of the organization is to: "STOP the child labour!" This may seam like an easy thing to decide but it is actually very important and not that easy at all. The mission de
