Child labour prevailing!

Child labour prevailing!

Child labour is an illegal act performed by the children in their early age by the involvement of some industrialists and businessmen all over Bangladesh. Industrialists and businessmen generally chose child labour because of the efficient work in minimum time at low cost. And, children generally get involved in the work because of their poverty and lack of education. People, who are very poor and cannot manage their two times food and clothes, become forced to send their kids and children to do some job at lowest payment instead of sending them to the school for education.
According to the survey of 2001, it was found that approximately 90 percent of the children were involved in productive activities as a supplement to their family income (23.8%) or improving their family income (66%). Tasks or activities, which are not involved in affecting the health and personal development of children or interfering in their schooling, cannot be counted as child labour. They can be taken as positive and no need to be eliminated. However, all those activities, affecting a child in all aspects (health, personal development, schooling, etc), are needed to be eliminated.
