Purpose
The project primarily focuses on addressing the issue of child labor in Faisalabad through education. Faisalabad is the 3rd biggest city of Pakistan with a population of -----millions (cite source). It is one of the world’s leading producers of textile products. Apart from textile industry, it generates employment opportunities for millions of skilled and non skilled work force (cite source) in various other formal and non formal sectors (Cite exact number and source). In the perspective of Faisalabad, it is estimated that about---under-aged children have been involved in child labor (cite). They are incorporated into a range of employment sectors. They work as waged laborers, street vendors, and seasonal migrant workers. They work at power looms, restaurants, tea stalls, brick kilns, wholesale/retailer markets, and workshops. They are paid their wages in kind or on a piece-rate basis. Their parents employ them on work to gain skills and experience. Some children lend hand to their parents in cottage industry and brick kilns as unpaid workers. A number of children especially the girls serve as servants and maid servants in houses. They are exploited by their employers in different ways. They neither enjoy labor rights, nor have any flexible working hours. Due to unhealthy working environment, they suffer from physical, emotional, and psychological problems. The migrant workers suffer the most. They are even sexually harassed and abused by their adult colleagues and employers.
Ample research has been made by other NGOs to find out ways and adopt active measures to address this issue. Despite their hectic efforts, the rate of child labor has perked up to a large scale. Lagan Foundation adopts a holistic approach to combine work with schooling. It looks to change mind sets by raising awareness among the children, their parents, and all other potential beneficiaries. It envisages to phase-out child labor by promoting education among them.
