Delhi traders to make Nehru Place a child-labor free zone

More than 13 traders from Nehru Place have come together to tackle the evil of child labor. This initiative has been taken by IT traders including Shyam Modi, chairman, All Delhi Computer Traders Association (ADCTA), Mahendra Aggarwal, president, Swarn Singh, joint secretary; Rajiv Grover and Dr PS Sethi, active member of ADCTA.

The association recently conducted a meeting with 'Save the Children', an NGO which has been working for protection and education of street children in Nehru Place for the last 2 years. At the meeting it was agreed that shopkeepers will take a pledge to keep their shops child-labor free by putting up notices (sticker) to declare it free of child labor.

 

According to the NGO, "Out of almost 400 street children in Nehru Place, 'Save the Children' has reached out to almost 223 children in the last 2 years and has enrolled about 80 of them into mainstream MCD schools."

"Despite laws to curb child labor, the number of children who are forced to work is on the rise. It is our common responsibility to strive to curb the practice. With this step, we want to spread awareness against child labor," said Modi. "We will actively participate and contribute, in any way possible, to make Nehru Place a child-labor free zone," added Aggarwal.

Singh pointed out, "We are going to run an awareness campaign through messages on the shop/offices and bring awareness amongst general public about this sensitive issue." He also added, "Under this campaign-'Street to School', we will create awareness for those children who are working at places like restaurants and dhabas among the occupants and visitors. Our association-ADCTA-will participate and support this project."
