Construction in India is booming and though technological advancements have been made there is still a lot of work done with manual labor such as road construction and low income building projects. Often construction workers leave their homes in the villages and live like gypsies traveling from work site to work site, living in tin shacks on the site or even under the buildings being constructed. Children are left by themselves to play around the construction site and have little opportunity for education. NGO's have started to provide these children with an opportunity to learn by creating mobile centers within the sites that act as a classroom, daycare center, and provide food. This is an improvement to the alternative often seen of children playing on sites in rubble. However, because these centers are within buildings under construction they are filled with dust and take time to install proper facilities.
