Project Funded!

Brick Layers School Fund

Location: Chandigarh, IN

Budget: $130000.00

Still Needed: $54200.00

Goal: Send 1000 enslaved children to school

How You Can Help:

We have an opportunity to rescue 1000 children from a life of slavery for only $130 per child!

In Northern India, entire families are working in brick factories to pay off their debt to the factory owners. Children as young as five years old spend their days making bricks and piling them high.

With no chance at an education or even a glimpse at life outside the factory, these kids face a very bleak future.

But everything is about to change!

One factory owner is showing mercy. He has agreed to partner with us to send the children from his factories to school instead. We need your help to get these children registered for school before the school year begins in April 2019.

Your gift of $130 will provide:

  • Three school uniforms
  • Two pairs of shoes
  • Registration fees
  • Text books & school supplies

Once the children are enrolled, the state government will subsidize their education for the rest of their school years, while the local school board will locate corporate sponsors for ongoing support. Children will receive one nutritious meal at school each day, so their general health will immediately improve.

Imagine changing a child's entire future for only $130!

This is your chance to rescue a life. Will you give today?

Incredible! In just two months, the Impact Nations family has come together to send over 700 kids to school and free them from the Brick Factory! As the children are preparing for their first day of school, they need uniforms. In India, uniforms have to be custom made and cannot simply be purchased. The NLC Sewing Center recalled last year's graduates to help fill this huge order of uniforms!

As volunteers from the NLC Church Foundation in India work with the local schools to enroll students, they are learning some interesting things. The government built large schools in an area where few children are able to attend. This means that the schools sit empty with little federal aid. With 708 new students, three schools have been filled and will begin receiving federal funding. Interestingly, while some Indian schools have over one hundred students per class, these empty schools have enough space to fill classes with around 30 students. These brick slaves will now receive more personalized attention than other students in India!
