However by doing this, the families make their children deprived of education, recreation and their childhood. Children also face physical and sexual abuse by the owners and contractors at the sites.
During a field survey by Children of India Foundation, it was found that around 70 children of migrant families from different districts of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh are living in and around 5 brick kiln sites of Lingal Mandal of Nagarkurnool district and Pangal mandal of Wanaparthy district. The younger children are seen roaming without any parental care and support putting them in danger of accidents. They can’t continue their studies as there is no facility of a place, teacher or education materials at these sites. The elderly children just roam around with their families without any purpose. These children are prone to abuse, exploitation and trafficking. To safeguard them from these violences, CIF came up with a short term project for these children to continue their education and get quality time to engage in play and recreational activities.
From the total allocated money of Rs. 42,250, cost of education material for 70 children was Rs. 13,750/-, cost of playing materials for two centres was Rs. 6,000/- and honorarium of tutors for two remedial coaching centres was Rs. 22,500/- (Calculated as Rs. 250 per day per tutor x 2 tutors x 45 days)
