Child Labour Elimination Programme

Our Aim

The Child Labour Elimination Programme or CLEP was started with the aim of bringing children out of child/bonded labour, enrolling and retaining them in schools, giving them a chance to learn and regain their lost childhoods. Over the years, the Programme has identified thousands of out-of-school children, enrolled and retained them in regular schools, making education a reality for them.
