Brighter futures for child laborers

 Child labor is illegal in India—yet more than 10 million girls and boys are currently engaged in the workforce. At the Don Bosco Center in Passor (Pasahaur) India, Salesian missionaries are making a transformative difference in their lives.

Precious girls and boys who toil in the dangerous nearby brickfields of Passor receive reprieve, nutritious meals and the chance to just be kids. Older children can participate in basic lessons that prepare them for future education. And parents can tap into holistic services, such as access to basic daily necessities and medicine, that can help their families take the first important steps out of poverty.

You can be part of this remarkable work.

Right now, hundreds of youth participate in programs offered through the Don Bosco Center. Located in the shadow of a monstrous billowing smokestack, its hope-filled grounds push back against the despair… teeming with bright-faced, smiling children who are learning to play for the first time. Thanks to the generosity of kind friends like you, they are reclaiming their childhoods and charting new paths toward brighter futures!

Still, the need is so much greater. According to our missionaries at the center, each brickfield depends upon the labor provided by 200 households… which can include as many as seven children each. Throughout the country, there are about 500 fields—which means that thousands more girls and boys need our assistance.

Please… will you help us provide it?

Your support makes a real difference for real children. And your generosity extends far beyond Passor! Wherever endemic poverty forces girls and boys to work instead of go to school, you help our Salesian missionaries advocate for—and work toward—change, one child at a time.

Thank you in advance for your kindness!
