Child labour

182

Pakistan’s population consists of around 35 percent of children under the age of 18. According to law, it is unethical to make children under 14 years of age work but, in our country, around 2o percent of children seem to be working on streets doing difficult tasks requiring hard labour ranging from mending tyres, working with coal and collecting garbage.

Children are the assets of our country and venerable; they are not supposed to work. I request the concerned authorities to please help these poor and needy children and encourage them to study and save their future.
