Concerned for Working Children (CWC): One of the first organizations to work exclusively on the issue of child rights, CWC runs a residential vocational training school at Namma Bhoomi, Kundapur in Udipi District. The children, ex-child laborers, were to be equipped with appropriate and viable vocational skills as well as formal education, which would help them to find appropriate vocation.
