Children Welfare in Rampur
Poverty and lack of social security along with the unbalanced growth of economy have led to the need for children to choose work in the place of education, in many poor families. Some of the northern parts of India like Rampur, well known for handicraft and Zari making industries, where rate per piece system still prevails, engage young boys and girls for very low pay at work. But they mint their share by exporting these products to middle eastern and US countries.Children were also involved in Beedi manufacturing industries and more health depriving labours in this city.
National Child Labour Project
This is an envisaged government-based project in the areas with greater risk of child labour in India. Rampur is one of the districts listed under this project as a target. These are schools that target the children rescued from unsafe and hazardous occupations, with an objective of channelizing them to the formal school system. These children are provided bridging education and vocational training with stipend and health care facilities by the special schools, before they are admitted into the formal education system. Around 5.3% of men and 2.4% of women are married below legal age in urban Rampur, according to (AHS report 2010-11). Although child marriage is not a major issue in the city, it is a matter of concern when considering the rate percentage.
