Introduction: Child labor is a big social problem in most of the under-developed and developing countries. It refers to work that is mentally, physically, socially or morally dangerous and harmful to children. All such work done by children under the age of 15 and dangerous work done by children under the age of 18 is illegal. Child labour deprives children of their childhood, adequate education, their potential and dignity.
Forms of child labour: Child labour extends to activities such as agriculture, manufacturing, mining and domestic service. Slavery, forced labour, debt bondage and children working in illegal activities are some of the worst forms of child labour. Nearly 1 in 10 children are subjected to child labour worldwide.
Causes: Children are forced into child labour due to multiple reasons. The most common reasons are poverty, unemployment, limited access to free education, inadequate law enforcement, violation of workers’ right and discrimination against certain groups.
Consequences: Child laborers are exposed to accidental injuries, physical abuse, sexual abuse and physical neglect like lack of adequate food, shelter and clothing. Lack of schooling and healthcare threatens their future.
How to prevent child labour? : If we wish to eradicate child labour, we need to spread awareness of the evils of child labour. Families and communities must be encouraged to fight against this problem. There is a need for more stringent laws and their effective implementation. More work opportunities for adults and sending more children to school are some of the possible solutions to prevent child labour.
Conclusion: Children are the future of any society. It is the responsibility of all the adult citizens and government to stop this practice and create a safe, healthy and better world for children.
