Transcript of Child Labour
The term "child labour" is often defined as work that deprives children of their childhood, their potential and their diginity , and that is harmful to their physical and mental development.
It refers to work that:
is mentally, physically, socially or morally dangerous and harmful to children; and interferes with their schooling by depriving them of the opportunity to attend school or obliging them to leave school prematurely.
Over populated countries with large amounts of people that live below the poverty line, and lack of schools are considered the primary cause of child labour
it is not uncommon to see parents of large families, force their children to engage as labourers to earn money for their family's sake. With many mouths to feed and little money, sometimes there is no other choice.
Many children are trafficked by slave traders, stolen from their families, tricked or even sold by their parents for little money.
