No Child In Trash


Organization : Chintan Environmental Research and Action Group


Location : Delhi,Uttar Pradesh


Project Description

A Chintan study found that 84% of these children are severely anemic, have worms and suffer from recurring fevers and multiple injuries. Education is a particular challenge. Even if they do join a government school, many drop out, frequently because their government paid teachers discriminate against them. Chintan works with wastepicker children in four areas in Delhi: Nizamuddin (where it runs Project Arman), Ghazipur landfill, R.K. Puram and Seemapuri.

The main features of our work in the No Child in Trash programme are:

• Customized education for over 1300 children to help them train for formal school and stay in such schools.

• Exchange programmes with children from formal schools for cross learning and building partnerships.

• Parent-teacher meetings to help parents/guardians support the child's efforts.

• Activities that help waste picker children learn more about their city, governance and their rights.

• Limited access to healthcare
