So the project planed to provide them with lessons on drawing and cultural activities along with drawing kits and snacks during classes. Competition on drawing and cultural events was another attraction for the children. This raise competitive mentality among the children for wining the first prize which ensured their regular enrollment in the school. The project also organized community meetings with parents of the children, employers of the child workers and community leaders to motivate them for regular enrollment of the children in the schools.
