Vocational Training Programmes for Former Child Labourers in Andhra Pradesh
There are no government schools in the area so ASSIST built one, as well as community facilities where parents can leave their children when they go to work.
ADMCF worked closely with ASSIST to look beyond primary schooling to provide alternate livelihood training opportunities for the mostly migrant population working in the quarries and kilns under terrible conditions. The six-month training programme developed for 100 adolescents at a time, offers IT skills, tailoring, embroidery, mobile repair as well as training in English and in life skills. ADMCF purchased the land to build the vocational training centre for ASSIST in 2011 and helped to design and build the boarding facility.
