Support BLACD’s efforts to prevent children from resorting to Quarry Work
The founder of BLACD, Mr. Maher Boshra, was the first director of a civil society organization to care for these children by establishing the Wadi El-Nil Association for the Protection of Quarry Workers in 2000. Interventions have been implemented by the association to improve the health and living circumstances of quarry children and to liberate them from the dangerous work in the quarries.
Activities include raising awareness of children and their families of children’s rights, providing vocational training to children to give them skills to work in unhazardous sectors, offering loans to families of child workers to start small income generating projects in order to prevent their children from seeking work in the quarries, supporting children’s school attendance, distributing games and organizing sport and leisure time activities for children to allow them to enjoy their right to play and rest, as well as providing medical check-ups and medicines to counteract and prevent diseases related to the eyes, throat, lungs and bones.
