Migrating Childhood

The documentary ‘Migrating Childhood’, produced Aide et Action and The Bernard van Leer Foundation, introduces the lives of migrant children at worksites in India.

The Bernard van Leer Foundation works with Aide et Action to improve the living conditions of migrant children. The young migrants generally accompany their parents and live in very unhealthy, unfriendly environments like brick kilns and building construction sites, and are excluded from accessing quality child care. This often results in malnourishment, illness and morbidity, which also hampers their psychological, cognitive and physical growth.

The documentary was shot in four cities – Bhopal, Bhubaneswar, Chennai and Hyderabad. It not only focuses on the plight of the migrants, but has also tried to provide solutions to stop children from being deprived of basic facilities at work places.
