History

 

The State of Uttar Pradesh is the largest in India, with traditional industrial belts that have attracted rural migrants from all over North India.

our focus on mitigating child labour through direct interventions and advocacy efforts in Northern India continued in 2014-15, especially given that majority of the children we rescued from work in large metros such as Mumbai tend to originate from Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, and Nepal. Like Bihar, Uttar Pradesh is one of the main ‘sending’ States of working children to large cities – usually through coercion or other forms of trafficking.

PCVC entered Uttar Pradesh in December 2006 on the invitation of the State Department of Labour. Its mandate being to assist in the tracking, rescue, repatriation and rehabilitation of trafficked or vulnerable children, PCVC interacts regularly with the District administration, Labour Department, the Child Welfare Committee, the State Department of Education, members of the state legislature, local voluntary organisations and members of civil society.

 

PCVC Uttar Pradesh is currently working in Bahraich and Lucknow. To demonstrate community models for prevention and rescue of child labour we are working in two blocks of Bahraich District and in five communities in Lucknow.
