Hotspot operations: July 2018 – January 2023
The Freedom Fund’s hotspot in Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan, was working to prevent and eliminate child labour through a united strategy involving collaboration with the state government; working with local NGOs to improve access to education and government entitlements; strengthening livelihood opportunities; and building the capacity of apparel and handicraft businesses.
The Freedom Fund ceased providing funding to NGOs in 2021 due to Indian government restrictions on foreign funders. Until January 2023, Freedom Fund consultants provided technical support to former Freedom Fund grantees. This work has now concluded.
