The ‘Right To Education Act 2009′ (RTE) provides for ‘Free and Compulsory’ Education to all children in the 6 to 14 age group. However communities of construction labourers, pavement dwellers and other migrant communities are not seen to be aware of their rights.
As a result, even in the third year of RTE implementation, we can see a large number of out-of-school children around us.
The campaign envisages mobilization and involvement of large number of citizens towards participation in the Goal of Universal Elementary Education and also creating awareness among the people about the practical problems of the marginalized in educating their children besides the popularly believed reasons such as lack of motivation and lack of money.
