Project Description

The Kamlahan-Khadarawan school is a school for 50 freed or potential child laborers. The education at the school includes vocational training as well as preparing students to enter state schools.

Purpose / Goals

Short Term:
1. To remove 50 children from bonded labor in the village of Khadharawn-Phattupur
2. To place these children into a fully functional school
3. To prepare these children for the 5th grade level official examination so they can enter the state schools
4. Bring awareness to families in bonded labors regarding their exploitation by money lenders

Long Term:
1. To eradicate bonded labor from the Badohi and Varnasi Districts (eleven villages)
2. To provide proper funding for all eleven schools
3. To create gradual but profound change of the perception of debt bondage in these districts

Organization Description

Over the past 4 years, with support from ASHA for education, MSEMVS has shown how creation of community-based schools, removing children from forced labour, can be the catalyst for whole communities to emerge out of bonded labor, a form of slavery. In Bhadohi, Varanasi and Chandaully Districts of U.P., MSEMVS now runs 11 schools in communities selected for a comprehensive intervention against bonded labor. In 49 villages, including these 11, Community Vigilance Committees are linked together and are developing as a strong social movement for human rights in this area at the heart of north India’s carpet-producing belt.
