World Day Against Child Labour 2009……lets together remove child labour from the world.
A famous quotation by William Wordsworth says “The Child is the father of the Man”. But with the time, this beautiful quotation has lost all its meaning. Today the wealth of parents decides the destiny of their children whether they will enjoy life as they wish or work hard to earn their livelihood.
According the International Labour Organisation (ILO) around 165 million children between 5 to 14 years of age are involved in child labour all across the world which is something very sad. Considering this gruesome fact (ILO) has declared June 12 as World Day Against Child Labour. Every year on World Day Against Child Labour, ILO tries to highlight one of the ’Worst Forms or conditions of Child labour’. Its main motive is to remove child labour from the world and engage children into education.
Like many other countries of the world, child labour condition is also bad in India. Studies reveal that, India has the highest number of child labour of the world. Thousands of children are engaged in domestic work, mining, agriculture and other hard works. Besides this many children also work for long hours in factories. If we don’t take necessary actions soon then the condition will become worse in the coming years.
Hence we should try to find out possible ways to stop the child labour and save the children who are future of nation and world. So create awareness in the society, tell every parent about it. Most importantly, those who hire children for work should STOP hiring them….just try to put yourself in their place.
What you can do
- Stop hiring children for household works, in factories etc.
- If you find any child labour then – guide him; tell him that he must study to make his future bright.
- Create awareness in your locality.
- Get involved with some NGO etc.
Remember, if we together take remedial measures against the problem then the evil of child labour can be removed from the world.
