Education for all
Everyone agrees that education is important and that child labour is a plague, but thousands of families in India have little choice. Many children are forced to start working at just six to seven years of age, and often in environments which are hazardous to their health. This deprives thousands of children across India of their natural development and the freedom to be just children.
The Organisation Hand in Hand
Through training in entrepreneurship, self-help groups and access to micro loans, Hand in Hand primarily helps women to start their own businesses. Thanks to the increased income, they can take themselves and their families out of poverty.
