Child Labour Elimination Project – Jago Foundation

Based in the Giridih district, Jago was set up in 2004 in response to mass displacement of local communities due to mining and land acquisitions programmes. The depletion of forest cover led to a further loss of income and added to their hardship.
Saying no to child labour,
yes to education.
  • Displacement of people because of acquisition of land by Central Coalfields Limited (CCL) without adequate compensation
  • Deforestation and degradation of soil, severe drought proneness, inadequate sources of irrigation facilities and the largely unequal profit sharing from agriculture has rendered agriculture unprofitable.
  • Child labour is also rampant and malnourishment of children is common.
  • Illiteracy, gender abuse, caste discrimination and male alcoholism.
