Why the Brickfield Schools?
As a brand we find it important to give back and support local projects in India focusing on women empowerment or education.
The Brickfield School Project is an attempt to bring education, health and hygiene awareness and sensitization on rights and policies for both the brick workers and their children.
Throughout India there are thousands of brickfields – open air factories where clay bricks are made by hand. Most of the workers are migrants who, with their children, spend up to eight months of the year in these dusty fields. There is no formal education provided for these children due to the migratory nature of these families.
Their opportunities in life are drastically improved by the education provided by The Brickfield Schools. This project aims to break the cycle these families are in.
