An integrated approach to bridging the gap between kiln worker's children and their right to an education.

Bridge Schools

BRIDGE SCHOOLS

As many as 32,000 children live and often work on Brick Kilns throughout Nepal. Some are victims of trafficking, brought to the kilns by labor brokers while some are simply victims of poverty brought by their fathers and mothers. Whether pressed into child labor, or working to add a little to their family's meager wages, Nepal's kiln children are at risk of being a lost generation.

The Global Fairness Initiative, launched the BBN Bridge Schools program on kilns across Nepal. The program is focused on three activities:

  • Early Childhood Education Centers

    • Located on kiln premises and provide safe, educational environments for children under the age of six

  • Linking Children with Local Schools

    • Linking children at a pivotal age to local Nepali public schools

  • Learning Program on Kiln Premise

    • A specialized supplemental learning program for before and after school support ​

 

Support the education of a child on Nepal's kilns and secure a future for a kiln family
