Child Labour is a Shame on Us

Before you wear that gifted necklace, decorate your drawing room with that affordable carpet, savour a long awaited chocolate and prepare biriyani for weekend party; wait! Think about the millions who were exploited, overworked, beaten or worse abandoned/killed – only to make us happy!  Child Labour is a shame on us! tweet

As an intelligent civilization, we are innovating new ideas and adopting breakthrough strategies to reach advanced stages of social, cultural, and economical development worldwide, but there are many things that offer a slap on our ambitious efforts. The International Labour Organization estimates that 215 million children ages 5-17 are engaged in child labour (Source), approximately six out of ten slaves in the world are bonded labourers in South Asia (Source), only one out of five children involved in child labour is paid for his or her work(Source). Those little folks are  tired, unhappy, frail and frightened. At an age when they should play, read, write, and learn, they despair for their existence, and spend an unpredictable future. Are we listening?
