Child labor is the employment of children under an age determined by law or custom. This practice is considered exploitative by many countries and international organizations. Child labor was not seen as a problem throughout most of history, only becoming a disputed issue with the beginning of universal schooling and the concepts of laborers and children’s rights.
It is off course a curse and we should get rid of it. Otherwise our coming generations will not spare us. Children are the builders of Nations but it is sad and discouraging fact that we don’t treat our children as they should be treated. I hope all of you will share your views n will put forward suggestions that will help in eliminating this evil from our communities.
10 is the age of playing games, reading comic books and having fun and only and only fun but just look around you. You’ll find kids working at hotels or factories in unhygienic conditions just to fill their empty stomach….or even fulfilling bigger responsibilities. Is it justified? Don’t they also deserve the same basic facilities which u n me have enjoyed? They are also human beings and we, the privileged ones can certainly do something for them. This is a forum to share the opinions and strategies to stop the child labor.
We see around us everyday small children cleaning cars, serving in a hotel, even begging on the streets & yes we do feel sad for them seeing those innocent faces earning for their bread, but how many of us think about them after we go home & sit & watch television, may be we get involved in discussions in friend circles, but how many of these get practical, I just got this thought when I saw a little child come to me & ask a rupee while I was standing waiting for the bus, having a sip of tea, I could sympathize with him & give him a coin, or I can get angry on him & ward him off, but does this solve the problem. Yes off course it’s a big system & we r just individuals yet each individual has a great power to change something, take the system in control. So I thought of forming this community, to share my views with u all & hear your views, as well in the process we might practical our ideas, everyone is welcome whoever is concerned, we can do a lot of things, invent some projects & work towards abolishing child labor.
