Childhood is said to be the best part and spring of life.It is multi-coloured full of innocence and is the part of life when we are free from all the responsibilities.In some scenario , this may not be the case. some vicious and unfortunate children are burndened by the responsibilities of their families, so they do some work at early age for the survival. Child labour is the act of employing children in the early age, it has become a social issue. The leading reason for existence of child labour is poverty. Parents living below poverty line are not able to full fill the basic needs of their families hence, children are forced to work on low wages in unhygienic conditions. The term child labour is often defined as work that deprives children of thier chilhood, their potential and their dignity and that is harmful to physical and mental development. It refers to work that is mently,physicaly,socially or morally dangerous and harmful to children. Goverment has made saveral policesies to encourage these students to study.Free education is provided in the goverment school. Now , it is responsiblitiey of the citizens by not hiring children for work and should encourage them to get education. Children are meant to learn and not to earn.
