These Little Hands are Not Meant for that Heavy Load

How many times have you spotted a child cleaning tables at a nearby restaurant, and maybe even ordered him ‘Chotu, ek chai la?’

The future of such children lies in the hands of their ‘masters’. It is, if not slavery, just one step below it. They get paid meagre wages, get deprived of an education, and are made to do the same menial jobs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Sometimes, they do get a basic education, but have to drop out either because the NGO could no longer sustain them, or the work pressure is so much that they don’t find the time to study.

This short movie from Atma explains why it helps education based NGOs to sustain with their model of acceleration.

 

Share and save many such ‘Chotus’ and ‘Gudiyas’ from the evil clutches of poverty and incomplete literacy.
