In 2017 we went back to one of the project areas completed in 2014 to do the assessment and check on the situation. The CRPF was working effectively and child labour had not returned to the community. We seek to continue to expand our project operations to other communities in Telangana state.

"My parents were migrant workers in Hyderabad and I used to go with them to different destinations. I want to be a teacher like Vijerakshmi (a project staff teacher at the school)".
Renuka's older brother dropped out of school in grade 5 to work in the fields but was able to go back to a bridge school. Her other brother and sister are also attending bridge schools, with their family receiving income improvement support. Only Renuka and her brother can read and write in the family.

Renuka and her brother taught them how to write.
PEACE India ensures that their grandparents take care of the children, the whole family stays in the village for a long time, and the children continue attending the bridge school and move back into the public school system.
