What We Do

Working with the target group following were the Issues identified by Nirmal Jeevan.

  • Child labour
  • More than 200 million children worldwide are still working as child labourers. As per the National Census 2011, there are close to 10.1 million child labourers in India, in the age group of 5 to 14 years. About 1.4 million child labourers in India in the age group of 7-14 years can’t write their names. This means one in three child labourers in the said age group are illiterate. Child labour in India, somehow, has become a social norm that we accept and tolerate in our society. This exploitative and abusive practice will continue unless society adopts a zero tolerance attitude towards it. Children continue to be exploited and abused because the State and people do not address children’s issues comprehensively and effectively. These children mainly invove in ragpicking,vegetable/fruits and other kinds of matieral selling for their livelihood. Nirmal Jeevan adopts the strategy of educating, motivating and providing vocational training to eradicate child labour from their lives.
  • Illiteracy
  • Education is one of the most effective agents of change in society. When a child is able to go to school today, he or she sets off a cycle of positive change. But, thousands of children in India lack access to education and can’t even write their own names. Moreover, underprivileged children between the ages of 11 to 14 years are hugely vulnerable to dropping out of schools. An educated child stays away from an early marriage and is empowered to stand up against exploitation. As children grow, they are able to make better choices for themselves and influence the communities they live in. This transforms their present life and ensures a secure future for them. As Literacy requires a lot of attention, Nirmal Jeevan mainly works for this dream,“Every Child in School.“ We work at the grassroots level to make sure that children do not have to face these barriers and can fully exercise their right to education.

  • Malnutrition
  • India has the maximum number of malnourished children in the world – 1 in every 3 children are malnourished. The situation is extremely critical because the effects of malnourishment are irreversible if they occur at a young age. Malnutrition in India has become a situation that haunts the lives of millions of children. Among the 472 million children (2011 census), a whopping 97 million are anaemic and undernourished. Right now several children, women and communities are fighting the long-term ill- effects of malnourishment, chronic hunger, lack of health-care and unstable livelihoods. To help them out Nirmal Jeevan trys its best to provide access to medical help by conducting camps, awareness programs, campaigns, surveys and assessments. We also provide daily meals and supplementary food to fight against malnutrition.
