SOCIAL WELFARE AND REHABILITATION

 

RUGMARK Foundation (India) educates, rehabilitates and provides health care to the children removed from carpet weaving and also to the children of poor carpet weavers. It encourages community-based rehabilitation and runs various community development programmes.

RUGMARK opened its first primary school at Baribisa, Jagapur in 1996. From that day onwards RUGMARK has opened six schools and Balashrya (rehabilitation centre) in the heart of the carpet belt for the rehabilitation of child weavers who had been freed from the looms of RUGMARK licensees or were children of carpet weavers. The sixth school of RUGMARK Foundation was inaugurated on 10th April 2002, in Devnathpur -Lakhamanpatti, Bhodohi District of the carpet belt.

Basically, the rehabilitation of children freed from the looms or the rehabilitation of the children of weavers is done in four ways:
  1. Admission to schools
  2. Admission to the Rehabilitation Centre
  3. Helping children who have crossed the age of 14 to get admission to high schools if they wish to study further
  4. Assistance in setting up a profession of their choice
