Worldwide, at least one million children work in mining and quarrying. Some of them work in quarries in India, where cobblestones for paving and granite for gravestones, counter tops and floors are sourced. The children perform hazardous work and usually do not attend school.
Stop Child Labour works alongside a local organisation, local authorities and stone importers on creating a child labour free zone. Already, more children in a number of villages are going to school, but the job is far from done.
