Inability to speak local language and frequent mobility makes it especially difficult for the children of inter-state migrant construction workers to attend school. Sampark decided to work with this section by setting up mobile creches in the labour colonies in Bangalore. Aside from providing for care, safety, health and education for kids, it enables their mothers to earn a living and become economically empowered without worrying about their offsprings. The creche acts as a bridge school helping students build a base that comes in handy when they are mainstreamed into Local Government Schools.
