Stakeholder consultation: Building Partnership to overcome challenges – Cobble Making in BudhpuraManjari, an Indian NGO working towards Child Labour Free Zones (CLFZ) in the sandstone quarry area Dhabi-Budhpura, recently organized a stakeholder consultation. Manjari combats child labour in the production of sandstone cobbles by systematically withdrawing children from work and enrolling them into formal schools. Engagement with all relevant stakeholder, including parents, teachers, government officials and the private sector is key to gradually creating a CLFZ. The initiative is also supported by European natural stone companies Beltrami and London Stone.
In the one-day stakeholder consultation government officials, PRIs (Panchayati Raj Institution) representatives, cobble traders, NGOs like Stop Child Labour, CSR initiatives (TFT-RSP & ETI), business leaders, cobble makers, self-help group members, importing companies and their suppliers participated. The event aimed to sensitize all relevant stakeholders on the challenges on e.g. improving the quality of education, paying decent wages and tackling health and safety hazards in producing cobbles and sandstone.
