LEGAL FOCUS ON PRECLUSION AGAINST CHILD LABOUR
Children are the future of nation. It is they for whose way forward we build and design the nation. These children who are to be strong pillars of nation are made to become maculated and they are deprived of their childhood as they are forced to work. Not only loosing childhood but also affects their physical and mental development, they become unrealised of their ability and the dignity. They are immature enough to participate in excessively long and heavy work. There are many other inter-linked factors contributing to the prevalence of child labour. Child labour is both a cause and consequence of poverty. Household poverty forces children into the labour market to earn money. Some perform child labour to supplement family income while many also are in it for survival. They miss out on an opportunity to gain education, further perpetuating household poverty across generations, slowing the economic growth and social development.
