Potential child labour received preparation session from child centre over the year and 90% of them enroll in formal school. From the hazardous working children 50% of them enroll in formal schools for that the preparatory sessions are taken to make them competent for the schools admission. Rest elderly 40% children gets re-assignment to non-hazardous jobs get priority as their family live on their earnings and 10% goes for new safer job. However, compliances for the employers, school preparation session and tutorial support, basic awareness, primary health support and safety measure in workplaces and cultural exposure are the major areas of intervention. On the other hand, school follow up and tutorial support, sponsorship of the enrolled children by local people, community contribution for education centre etc initiatives are taken place for the sustainability of the program.
