Abstract

I will start this article with an illustrative example of work done with a group of schools located in the south-western fringes of the city of Kolkata. There is a strong presence of an informal economy in the neighbourhood, by way of kite-making, zari work, embroidery, etc. and children are often engaged in these activities to augment their family income. Given the hardships encountered by the families on a daily basis, education is relegated to a position of low priority for the families and children are reluctant to attend schools where they are not able to fit in properly.
