NDJK will carry out non-formal adult education, including discussions about specific human rights and how to identify actions to address root causes of slavery. They will hold after-school tutoring classes and child clubs to sustain children’s school attendance and help them share knowledge in the communities. They will arrange health camps in the communities and form self-help groups so that women can save together and invest in income-generating activities. They will help community members strengthen their demands on local government for their basic rights.
