LIVELIHOOD

Livelihood development programmes of NMCS focuses on liberating children – especially girls, from exploitative work environment in the brick kilns. Empowerment of women through skill development and entrepreneurship building has been a major step in ushering their economic liberation.

  • Females are trained in tailoring and male beneficiaries are trained in the skills of motor bike repairing.
  • After training, they have either received safer and more remunerative employment or have started own enterprise.

As result of these efforts, the number of adolescent girls workers (especially in brick kilns) have started to decline. Girls are more inclined in learning embroidery, tailoring and opting for safer, non hazardous jobs.
NMCS envisages expanding the options available for livelihood training beyond the currently available trades in future with scope to provide trainees from the migrant community with necessary equipment to enable them to practice the acquired skills in to their native villages.

In greater community sphere, NMCS has successfully trained school dropout youths in trades like cell phone repairing, domestic electrical wiring, soft toys making and vermicompost /mushroom cultivation and opportunities in food processing industry , thereby making them economically self reliant.
