Strategy

  1. The overall approach of the project is to create an enabling environment in the target area, where children are motivated and empowered through various measures to enroll in schools and refrain from working, and households are provided with alternatives to improve their income levels.
  2. NCLPS will be implemented in close coordination with State, District administration and civil society. Elimination of Child Labour is joint responsibility of the Ministry of Labour and Employment and the State Governments. Other stakeholders such as District Administrations, local communities, civil society groups, NGO‟s, academicians and enforcement agencies have an important role to play. The scheme seeks to not only set up the implementation structure but also institutionalize monitoring and supervision for effective functioning of the scheme.

Expected Outcomes

  1. Contribute to the identification and eradication of all forms of child labour;
  2. Contribute to the identification and withdrawal of adolescents from hazardous occupations and processes in the target area;
  3. Successful mainstreaming into regular schools of all children who have been withdrawn from child labour and rehabilitated through the NCLPS
  4. Adolescents withdrawn from hazardous occupations /processes to have benefited from skills training wherever required and linked to legally permissible occupations
  5. Better informed communities, specific target groups and the public at large as a result of the Social Mobilization Programme(s) and Awareness about the ill effects of child labour
  6. Enhanced capacities to address the issue of child labour through training of NCLP staff and other functionaries.
