Before addressing the problem of education it is important to understand the role of education and why much emphasis should be laid on it and Why it is necessary? At Mehaan we believe that children are the wealth of a nation, a wealth that guarantees a prosperous future. According to this, with 400 million children, India should be one of the richest countries on earth! It’s a pity that 11.8% of India’s national wealth is toiling to earn a livelihood, engaged in some sort of child labour or worse still out begging on streets. Agriculture and allied work account for nearly 70 % of child labourers but is not prohibited in the Child Labour Act 2006.
