Child labour is a menace, a dent in an otherwise soulful society, a vicious circle in which a regiononce enters, it deteriorates. A child when forced to work, suffers from slow mental growth and thus stays underdeveloped to gain all those skills required for adult employment and thus they force their children to work completing the cycle. Imagine, when you cried for a hot wheels’ car,there were children your age who were working 16 hours a day, who were being trafficked, who slept uncovered, who pulled bricks weighing double their weights and much more!BACHHPAN is a student run organization; an organization which takes children to school’s doorstep; an organization which accepts innocent smiles in return; an organization which helps children take the first step towards realizing a life with brighter, meaningful and a happy future;an organization bringing the evolution of the concept of abolishing child labour. Changes never occur unless they are brought and we at Bachhpan, inexperienced though, are rich in spirit and faith.
Bachhpan stands tall with a very straight and simple mission statement:
‘Provide A Future to each helpless child through education and stop their exploitation.’
Bachhpan family works selflessly towards the betterment of the society with a common vision:
‘Expanding Bachhpan in different cities across the State and Country and reaching as many needy kids as possible.’
We at Bachhpan aim to abolish child labour. Instead of setting goals which are remotely achievable or making seemingly huge claims about us, we choose to work; we learn, we grow,we evolve and take the society with us. We at Bachhpan believe that being lucky to have acquired the gift of knowledge implies a moral duty to help those children who are deprived of it. Young brigade is the soul of our organization. A set of committee members and volunteers in different colleges guided by a head member collect funds from the students and faculties on monthly basis i.e. 100/- Rs for students and 250/- Rs for others. We select children from nearby areas who are child laborers and motivate them and their families to invest their time in education. The amount you spend on a movie, when put together, can change people’s lives, and what better than being blessed by a satisfied, fulfilled heart of a person who once was aimless and shattered. We thus request students like us, Teacher, the most responsible minds of the society and others to help small children find a way through darkness of ignorance. Through your generous donations we can make someone’s dream come true. What you think is a small amount can change many lives forever. Volunteers here are invaluable supporters. We have a team of 250+ volunteers of kind, flexible and friendly profile. They handle all together 600+ children in all the 8 different slum areas running Anand-Vidhyanagar and Ahmedabad.
