The children of Solan in Himachal Pradesh have access to schools and a right to free education. Yet many of them will not be fou`nd in school on a typical day. Instead they can be found picking waste or engaged in other labor deemed accessible to children. As people of poor and marginalized backgrounds, their families say the small income generate by the children is necessary for the family to survive.
