Child Labour
Child labour is one of the most horrible atrocities present in the society today where children usually of a very young age are forced by the circumstances to work or beg for their living. Child labour is doing of any work that is damaging to his or her mental, physical and emotional development. Children work because their survival and that of their families depend on it. Child labour persists even where it has been declared illegal, and is frequently surrounded by a wall of silence, indifference, and apathy. While the total elimination of child labour is a long-term goal,we believe that certain forms of child labour must be confronted immediately.

Sankalpam believe that child protection is crucial to ensuring that children under 18 years of age have the rights, confidence and environment in which they can make choices, express their views and communicate effectively with other children and adults. Children cannot become empowered change agents to improve their lives and that of their families and communities if they are not safeguarded from abuse, discrimination and harm of any kind, be it physical, sexual, emotional or neglect. we believe in children's active participation and in respecting their freedom of expression and communication and we also believe that the effective abolition of child labour is one of the most urgent challenges of our time.

Our mission in this context is to identify areas in Andhra Pradesh where the children are more prone to vulnerability and exploitation ; to rehabilitate them through counselling and enlightening them about the importance of education with which we aim to work towards encouraging, enabling children and young minds to promote the holistic health, well-being and development of themselves, their families and their communities which contributes to the greater good of not just our nation but also the world in large.


Education for girls
Sankalpam is a strong proponent of empowerment of girls through education as we believe that educating a girl would make them aware of what is happening around them which would enable them to make right decisions for themselves and their families. Sankalpam will counsel the parents and guardians of the girls who belong to the vulnerable sections of the society and make them realize the importance of their child being educated,assure their families support in different aspects such as financial in order to avoid children dropping out of schools.
