Child Marriage Prevention activities

    Since 2000 onwards HEALDS involved in prevention of girl child marriages in namakkal district.
The harsh reality that poor parents simply cannot miss the income of their girl child and do not feel school education and searching for means to increase their meager income are often easy victims for exploiters.  So we initiate strong community involvement, local teachers participation, parents motivation, quality primary education in villages, economic support to parents through self help groups towards every thing that the would like to go regular school. 
      During the time HEALDS learn lot of experiences with child survival is in critical position.Lack of primary education, child abuse in working places, discrimination against children of sex workers, commercial exploitation, physical torture, forced in to bonded system of labour, early child marriage and etc.
      It is revealed that a big challenge in front of HEALDS to eliminate these violations and exploitation against the children particularly girl children in our community.
which is lead to involve HEALDS in community based ‘Child Rights Education Center’ program primarily in 26 villages.  This successful concept must articulate the latent demand of the parents for providing education of their children to avoid commercial sexual exploitation and organize and force the village community participation to deliver its responsibility towards children’s education and Basic rights. 
Till now nearly 80 working children and 36 drop-out children were re-enrolled to regular schools in Mohanur block of Namakkal district.  Now we extended our program to rescue the working children nearly 70,000 from thick power loom Industrial area in Thiruchengode Taluk of Namakkal district.  It is a wider challenge of our focus on  power loom Industrial area  at present.
