Child Labour

This is a relatively new intervention of WSS. It carried out a survey on child labour in four wards of Kannauj city from November 15 to December 5, 2007, leading to identification of 835 child labourers. These children are not attending any school and working in dangerous units.

A similar survey was carried out in four wards of Bilhaur tehsil of Kanpur Nagar district. This led to identification of 1,035 child labour. Like the child labourers in Kannauj city, these child labourers are also far away from schools and working in dangerous occupations.

Strategies are being formulated for intervention among child labourers.
