Born to work

The prevalence of child labour in the country not only violates international conventions and ethical standards but also perpetuates cycles of poverty and inequality. It is distressing to witness children forced into dangerous working conditions, denied access to education, and stripped of their dignity. Society cannot turn a blind eye to this injustice.

To combat child labour effectively, we must take concerted action on multiple fronts. Strengthening legislative frameworks, enforcing existing laws, and providing support to at-risk families are crucial steps in eradicating this practice. Additionally, investing in education and creating sustainable economic opportunities for families can offer viable alternatives to child labour.
