Mission Statement

â ¢ All Children must attend full-time formal-day schools. â ¢ Any child out of school is a child labourer. â ¢ All labour is hazardous,and harms the overall growth and development of the child. â ¢ There must be total abolition of child labour. â ¢ Any justification perpetuating the existence of child labour must be condemned.

Description

MVF began work in the area of child labor in 1991and has grown into a complex organization employing a wide range of strategies to achieve its twin objectives of eradicating all forms of child labor and universalizing education. MVF has an uncompromising position on abolition of child labour in all its forms, even as it perceives every child out of school as child labourer. Propelled by a set of non-negotiable principles that guide the programme, its one-point agenda is to ensure that no child works and all children go to schools. It has thus mobilized communities to withdraw hundreds of thousands of children from work and join them into schools covering over 6000 villages in eleven districts of Andhra Pradesh. Simultaneously, it has strengthened local institutions such as the Gram Panchayats and School Education Committees, in favour of children's right to education. Through setting up of Child Rights Protection Forums and Girl Child Rights Protection Forums in the villages it has taken up specific issues of violation of child rights. Consequently, it has worked towards establishing a social norm that no child must work and every child must attend full time formal day school. It has also brought pressure on the government to respond to the needs of first generation learners.
