Children are the leaders of tomorrow and the future of any nation. Every child has a right to free and quality EDUCATION. Children without access to education ends up as Child Labourers. Education hence is a key element in the prevention of Child Labour.
Not all work done by children should be classified as child labour that is to be targeted for elimination. Children’s(children) or adolescents’ participation in work that does not affect their health and personal development or interfere with their schooling, is generally regarded as being something positive. This includes activities such as helping their parents around the home, assisting in a family business or earning pocket money outside school hours and during school holidays. These kinds of activities contribute to children’s development and to the welfare of their families; they provide them with skills and experience, and help to prepare them to be productive members of society during their adult life.
