Unlocking potential by advocating for child rights in India


Where: Piplaj slums surrounding Ahmedabad, in the Western state of Gujarat, India.


Who: 200 children.


What: Providing education to slum dwellers and advocating for child rights.


How: Following the 2002 Gujarat communal riots thousands of people were displaced and forced into slums, with hundreds of children forced out of school. Almost a decade later, the aftermath still remains a serious problem for over 2,500 children living in Piplaj, where primary healthcare is non-existent, no formal school exists and other basic infrastructures are scarce. Childreach International works in partnership with the Centre for Development (CfD) to provide informal schooling to children displaced by the riots preparing them for enrolment into mainstream state run schools.
