Now working as a Sardar (supervisor) in the tea gardens, 34-years-old Zakarias Sona has 15 years of experience working in Brahamajan Tea Estate. He, along with his family of seven lives in the makeshift houses inside the estate. He, his wife, four children, and his mother live here. Initially, he worked as a Faltu (temporary) labourer for his starting years, later he inducted as a permanent worker in place of his mother as Brahamajaan Tea Estate has the policy to offer a permanent position held by one to his/her nearest kin. At first, he was very vocal against the activities of Save the Children and our partner organizations in his area. He opposed to such NGO's interfering in the ways of working in the estate. He even went on to create ruckus during our meetings and awareness campaigns under the influence of alcohol. Changing his orientation towards child rights and related issues was a hard nut to crack for our field staff. Constant inputs by our field staff changed his perspective towards child protection issues. This happened after he attended awareness drives held during the celebration of UNCRC (United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child) week.
