Every year, June 12 is celebrated as the World Day against Child Labour. This day is intended to foster worldwide movement against child labour in any of its forms.
Child Labour is defined as, ”work that deprives children of their childhood, their potential, and their dignity, and that is harmful to their physical and mental development”. Hundreds of children drop out of their school every year to help their parents earn a livelihood . The more unfortunate ones are forced into child labour by organised crime rackets, while many others never get to see a school because of extreme poverty.
Today, 152 million children are still in child labour. Child labour occurs in almost all sectors but 7 out of every 10 of those children work in agriculture.
CHILDREN SHOULDN’T WORK IN FIELDS BUT ON DREAMS!!!!!!
