Aide et Action part of tripartite partnership to educate Odia children in Telangana
23 January 2018

The ‘Operation Smile” by Telangana Police identified and rescued 400 and 700 out-of-school children in 2016 & 2017 respectively. With the objective of providing education to these children who belong to the state of Odisha, they approached AEA for support. The Aide et Action immediately swung into action, identified and trained young education volunteers from Odisha and placed them in the worksites to support the children in their education.

This ensured their education and holistic development. In the end of the migration season, the volunteers traveled along with the migrant families to the source areas and ensured that these children are mainstreamed back to the local schools/anganwadis over there.

As an effort to strengthen the role of the employers in safeguarding the future of the migrant children, AEA encouraged their active participation and support in promoting the education of migrant children in the worksites. This was also a strategic step to curb child labor.

As a result, the Telangana State Brick Kiln Association came forward to support the education of migrant children in the worksites. 

The support included the provision of uniform, books, transport and other accessories. AEA also engaged with the local government schools for conducive space for the education of migrant children. The Peddakonduru & Ravirala primary schools came forward to support the initiatives and have provided classrooms.

This unique tripartite partnership between Government of Telangana, Brick Kiln Association, and AEA was formally launched on 20th & 30th January at both Peddakonduru primary school & Ravirala primary schools respectively. The launch at Peddakonduru was graced by Mr Mahesh Bhagwat, IPS, Commissioner of Rachakonda Police, Ms Anita Ramachandran, IAS, Yadadari District Collector and district officials. The launch at Ravirala was graced by Mr Mahesh Bhagwat, IPS, Commissioner of Rachakonda Police, Mr M Raghunandan Rao, IAS, Ranga Reddy District Collector, Sri Telagala Krishna Reddy, Member of Legislative Assembly and other government officials.


The events were coordinated by Aide et Action Hyderabad Regional Office with the support of  Migration Information Resource Centre, AEA SA.
