Defeating Child Labor

A child is not designed for work. The only workload he or she should bear is that of the school assignments and of keeping the room clean. Yet, some 120 million children worldwide between the ages of 5 to 14 are estimated to be in the work force. This number includes both boys and girls, and there are many factors that are giving continuance to child labor.

One of the many elements boosting child labor is lack of quality education. The failure to ensure education to all children can cost the children their childhood and the opportunity to create a better future. Hence, this World Day Against Child Labour is focused on the importance of quality education in bringing child labor to an end. But how can one ensure that every child gets education? Here are a few things enlisted by ILO (International Labour Organization) that can be done to battle child labor:

Ensure free, compulsory and quality education for all children.
Strong, national policies in every country on education rights and child labor.
Introduce policies that guarantee easy access to quality education and investment in the teaching profession.

12 June is World Day Against Child Labor, and here is hoping that soon there will be no need for a day as such. Hopefully, every child will live a childhood they deserve, where there is no room or need for labor work.
