The children of the waste pickers and other working women in the Slums in Indore suffer most from lack of care, nutrition and education as their mothers as unorganized workers, waste pickers and domestic workers, get little time to care for their family and children. The mother has to go for work from early morning to late evening to find family’s both ends meet. In such situation the small infant is left with the elder sibling to be cared for which makes these children to remain at home and not to go to school.
Janvikas is running bridge course centers in slums as models for prevention of child labour. Lack of proper facilities for education make the children child labourers. Through the bridge course centers working children and the drop out students are mainstreamed by preparing them for the board exams according to their leaning capacity and age.
Activities are in progress in 'Creating awareness among people of Indore city on cleanliness' as part of Swach Bharat Abhiyan in collaboration with Indore Municipal corporation.
Janvikas is part of the nation wide campaign for inclusion of Rag Pickers into the Solid Waste Management Process.
The Solid Waste Management Rules 2016 clearly states about the inclusion of Rag Pickers in the Solid Waste Management Process. Rag Pickers are the owners of dry waste generated.
