In India, an estimated 11 million children work as child laborers.
The Pratham Council for Vulnerable Children addresses child labor and other forms of abuse. These are a major source of illiteracy.
The programs goals are to reach out and address issues of all vulnerable children, prevent children from entering the labor market, withdraw child workers and other vulnerable children from work or any exploitative situations,prepare children to be mainstreamed and sustained into formal school – monitor and improve their learning level, and raise awareness on child rights issues.
The task force Pratham put together under the Government of Maharashtra eventually rescued and rehabilitated almost 25,000 working children in the city.
