KKPKP has advocated for the unclean occupations scholarship program at the state government level. Stree Mukti Sangatana, a women’s liberation organization that works with waste pickers, has also been involved in this process. KKPKP has also been working at the city and state levels around the Right to Education program for underprivileged children. There have been hurdles and incidents of non-compliance by schools, who continue to harass children and parents. A film on the Right to Education was made to share with different audiences and explain the correct legal position.
