Close to the imperial city of Agra or and not far from the royal, vintage Jaipur, Firozabad is a suburban industrial town in the north of India. Famous for its glassware and especially Bangles, Firozabad is equally notorious for the prevalence of Child Labour in their production.
ChildFund India is running Disha Children’s Program in Firozabad to combat the menace of Child Labour. The program is fully sponsored by ChildFund Germany. In 2013, Sustainable Livelihood development Program” or ‘SLDP’, has been introduced in the project to develop entrepreneurial proclivity and capability among the community memebers and especially the youth. ‘Sopan’ is a film that documents SLDP intervention and its effects in Disha program.
