Project Nanhi Kaliis anIndian non-governmental organisationthat supports education for underprivileged girls inIndia. Founded byAnand Mahindrain 1996, it is jointly managed by theNaandi Foundationand theKC Mahindra Education Trust, which is part of the corporate social responsibility activities of theMahindra Group. Currently, Project Nanhi Kali supports over 57,000 students.
Project Nanhi Kali sees educating girls and women as a way to positively impact India in the long run. Sheetal Mehta, the president of the non-profit organisation, told theDaily News and Analysisin an interview that "we wanted to create global awareness about the plight of young girls in the country who are denied their basic right." Students who are selected for Nanhi Kali receive both financial and academic support. They attend special classes to learn math, science, and language concepts. Nanhi Kali pays for thehidden costsof their education, including pencils, notebooks, uniforms, school bags, clothes, and shoes. Funding is from individual and corporate donors, who sponsor a particular child and receive regular updates on her progress at school. Sponsors can also go to the online "Girl Store" to purchase particular items for a student. The Mahindra Group sponsors the education of 11,000 girl children through Project Nanhi Kali. Third-party assessments show that Nanhi Kali has a significant impact on the girls' lives. Over a one year period, Nanhi Kali students' improvement in learning outcomes ranged from 40 percent in tribal Chhattisgarh to 78 percent in Mumbai. Child Labor The 2001 national census of India estimated the total number of child labour, aged 5–14, to be at 12.6 million. Child labor problem is not unique to India; worldwide, about 217 million children work, many full-time.
In 2001, out of a 12.6 million, about 12 million children in India were in a hazardous job.UNICEFestimates that India with its larger population, has the highest number of labourers in the world under 14 years of age, while sub-saharan African countries have the highest percentage of children who are deployed as child labour.International Labour Organizationestimates that agriculture at 60 percent is the largest employer of child labor in India, while United Nation'sFood and Agriculture Organizationestimates 70 percent of child labour is deployed in agriculture and related activities. Outside of agriculture, child labour is observed in almost allinformal sectorsof the Indian economy.
Acts Article 24 of India's constitution prohibits child labour. Additionally, various laws and the Indian Penal Code, such as the Juvenile Justice (care and protection) of Children Act-2000, and the Child Labour (Prohibition and Abolition) Act-1986 provide a basis in law to identify, prosecute and stop child labour in India. NGOs Many NGOs like Bachpan Bachao Andolan,CARE India,Child Rights and You,Global march against child labor,RIDE Indiaetc. have been working to eradicate child labour in India.
Prathamis India's largest non-governmental organization with the mission 'every child in school and learning well.' Founded in 1994, Pratham has aimed to reduce child labour and offer schooling to children irrespective of their gender, religion and social background. It has grown by introducing low cost education models that are sustainable and reproducible.In 2005, Pratham was involved in coordinating a child labour rescue operation with India's Ministry of Labour and police, when around 500 children were rescued fromzarisweatshops inNew Delhi.
