By Mahi Jain( VI) : Child Labour refers to the employment of children of their childhood, interferes with their ability to attend regular school and that is mentally, physically, socially or morally dangerous and harmful.
This practice is considered exploitative by many international organizations. Legislations across the world prohibit child labour. No child below the age of 14 can work except family duties. Almost 90% of children who are indulge in child labour are poor. Childhood is a time to enjoy not to work because after the age of 18, life is full of responsibilities. Government has made certain laws to prevent (prohibit) child labour.
Such steps like providing such poor children free education, also we should educate people, and especially villagers about the ill-effects of child and create awareness. Such families who don’t have any children should come forward to adopt such homeless kids so that they must have home.
Children are the future of any nation and we must give their small eyes big dream, so that they can spread their wings and can fly in the sky and bring India up to the level where developed nations are.
