Building blocks Introducing ICT-based education for the children of brick kiln workers
Given the informal and seasonal nature of brick production, brick kiln workers are compelled to migrate with their family during the brick production season (October–May). Coupled with the highly marginalized and vulnerable status of brick kiln workers, this seasonal migration seriously hampers their children’s education. The children are unable to finish their curriculum, and most have to repeat the academic year. In turn, the children are unable to break free of the intergenerational poverty cycle. In Nepal, around 32,000 children experience this pattern of interrupted education.
