Description of Bricks
Bricks are

an incredibly hard building material.
Bricks are used for the construction of walls, column construction, pavements, and parapet walls in bridges.
Child Labour Story
In Pakistan, a 13 year old boy named Gabir had to make bricks. Gabir makes bricks for 8 and a half hours each day earns 50 Rupees, which is about 60 cents a day. Gabir works six days a week and carries 600 to 700 bricks a day.
Children are exposed to high temperatures, smoke and fire while making bricks. They work barefooted and their hands are not protected.
Children have to do heavy lifting,operating dangerous machinery and contact with extremely hot brick ovens in Kabul, Afghanistan.
In Brazil's brick factories, children risk long term health damage from breathing in chemicals, lifting heavy loads and working long days.
Children in the brick kilns
of Nepal work in an area with
black smoke, dust and germs.
Children working with the rough soil
used to make bricks in India are known
to suffer open wounds which may
become infected, or scar.
Many workers are under 16 and or mentally handicapped. Some are disciplined in
unusually cruel fashion being beaten or
burned with hot bricks by their supervisors.
Children aged 10-14 produce unbaked bricks.
When girls aren't working at the kiln, they would do chores, and leave other family members free
to manufacture bricks.
Working in the brick kilns carries
health risks ranging form third
degree burns from kilns to
respiratory problems to brick dust.
Kids have to wash bricks, make a solution of concrete and carrying up heavy loads for building
Burmese Children are forced to make bricks while in a Burmese military holding camp, where captured children are taken before beginning their military training.
Making bricks in Peru is often done by
unskilled migrants from rural areas. The
pay is low meaning that families involve
children to make sure enough work gets
North Korea's forced labour camps have children that are left with bruised and sore hands because of harsh chemicals used in brick making.
In 2001, 455,000 children under the
age of 15 worked in Ecuador. Brick
making is a common industry for
children to work in.
Children are involved in all aspects of
clay production. This includes transporting bricks to be fired, loading them into kilns and clay extraction from the ground.
Most children in Uganda work for 5 to 6 days a week.
In conclusion, 15 countries in the world have children who are forced to make bricks and are suffering. We should all do something about this to help these poor children live a better life.
