migrant labour school

North 24-Parganas district in West Bengal is dotted with brick kilns. These have always provided seasonal employment to landless labour from the arid regions of Purulia, Bankura, Jharkhand and Bihar. But there are no amenities for the thousands of migrant families who throng to the kilns and child labour is rampant.


To understand what it takes in terms of curriculum and other enablers, to provide quality education to the children of migrant labour Azim Premji Foundation decided to start schools for these children.
