Ending
child labour in India's mica mines.

What is Child Labour Free Mica?

Child Labour Free Mica is a unique initiative and platform for children, community, civil society members, NGOs, and local government, aimed at eliminating all forms of child labour from mica mining regions of Bihar and Jharkhand in India.

We are working with communities, government, and partners on child labour monitoring and remediation to ensure that children from all 684 mica-revenue-dependent villages in Bihar and Jharkhand are protected from child labour and other forms of labour and exploitation.

Our Approach

To ensure that the Mica supply chain is free of child labour by 2025, we have come up with the  PICKET approach. 

In simple terms, a picket is a point of stake or post e.g., a fence, or a group of soldiers standing guard. Our PICKET approach acts as a guard or a fence for child protection in the mica mining areas.
