Child Labour


Ali Hassan Khan
MOST of the underprivileged children in Pakistan, Especially in korangiKarachi, have been left on the streets, having hardly anything to eat or wear. They are forced to work and be used as a source of earning . According to the Article 11(3) “No child below the age of 14 years shall be engaged in any factory or mine or any other hazardous employment”. Still, no such action by the government is taken in this regard. Child labor is an illegal employment of children in any work that deprives children of their childhood. Not all work done by children ought to be delegated kid work that will be focused for end. Youngsters’ or youths’ cooperation in work that doesn’t influence their wellbeing and self-awareness or meddle with their tutoring, is for the most part viewed as being something positive. The worst form of child labor is they became enslaved, separated from their families, they may face some serious hazards or illness, or they left those children on the streets of big cities so they beg for themselves. Pressurizing children for work in their early age do exist in Korangi area .
