Intervida - Awakening Jagriti
Educational Program for the children of construction labourers ( EPCCL) is a project which works with children of construction labourers. The department was started in the year 2001, during the first year of operations we were running only 1 school with 20 children. Presently our program has expanded to more than 37 activity centres which are reaching out to more than 1500 children.

The construction industry is the second largest employer of man power in India, most of the construction activity takes places in metros and major cities in India. Pune in the recent years has become a hub for construction and there has been a lot of demand for skilled and unskilled manpower. Most of the work undertaken at construction sites does not require any specialized skills.

The economic condition of majority of small land holders and marginal farmers

are poor and they have been migrating to the cities to look for viable economic ventures. The construction industry with its large need for unskilled manpower has been attracting most of the migrants from rural and interior parts of central India.

The living conditions across most of the sites are poor; some of the major concerns are lack of provisions for safety and complete lack of developmental facilities for children. Moreover the parents see their stay in the construction site as transitionary and do not take any steps to improve their own quality of life. In our experience we have seen that people continue to be a part of the construction site for a really long time thereby depriving their children of educational and developmental facilities.

Recognizing such needs of children a recent ruling by the government has made provision of crèches compulsory.

While it is encouraging to note that at present more than 25 builders are running crèches at their construction sites, it is also alarming to note that there are more than 500 construction sites in Pune where there are no crèches.
