The impact of temporary/seasonal labor migration on child well-being and education, was a discussion topic, in a recent meeting with the Juna Kathiwada villagers. The village is witnessing large scale migration of villagers in search of employment to Rajkot, Gujrat. They live six to nine months in the city, survive purely on daily wages and are usually accompanied by their children.
The villagers were given awareness on #RightToEducation and various government initiatives. With help from AMMACHI Labs team, they have decided to meet the Educational Officer to know more about SC/ST/OBC/Min. hostel facility in their village and its availability for their children.
Note : ‘The Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act’ or ‘Right to Education Act also known as RTE’, is an Act of the Parliament of India enacted on 4 August 2009, which describes the modalities of the importance of free and compulsory education for children between 6 and 14 in India under Article 21A of the Indian Constitution.
