The overall goal of LEDS’s 2018-2019 project is to sensitize the community towards the cause of child labour and organize communities to take action. A conscious and aware community will be empowered to stand up against employers of child labour and traffickers. Throughout the course of this project, LEDS will engage in action research, which is a learning process that combines collecting and analysing evidence, with learning from experimental action.

 

LEDS will form community groups and Research and Action groups, as well as establish five Information cum Children’s Activity Centres. Through these groups, LEDS will share information about the issue of child labour. More focused stakeholder/resource mapping will also take place through the Research and Action groups, who will also develop Community Report Cards on the different issues identified in the communities and aim to implement action points identified through their research. Data will be generated on child labour, information materials will be developed and disseminated, and child rights champions will be trained. LEDS will also work with the community to identify statutory bodies and government stakeholders to advocate for policy changes.
