what changed

The Midnapore area is prone to droughts and cyclones making the soil saline, and the area non-arable. Farmers are forced to migrate, resulting in poverty, child labour, child trafficking and child marriages. Poor teacher-student ratios in schools meant a drop in the quality of education and child welfare.

KJKS intervened and shifted to focus from mere welfare to a holistic approach towards long-term change. Awareness building, community participation and advocacy have played a key role in systematically bringing about change. It is a change that will impact future generations too.
