Instead of going to school and playing with other children. They toil and expose their young bodies to danger. Is there any light for them at the end of the tunnel?

Hi simple guy,:)

Thank you!...UNICEF is just one of the agencies that look after the welfare of the children. But we can't give them total responsibility to do this, alone. as an individual we can also reach out to the children...but it depends on person's discretion.

Some countries try their best to get rid of the problem, but there are actors that impede the drive against child labor. Some MyEC members cite reasons, why they are convinced that the fight to eradicate child labor is hopeless.

      Hi Totoro, really,  it is one of an enjoyableI topics I have ever read. I appreciate your work with such children. I hope one day I can help them as well, or at least listen to their problems, that gives them a hope that one day they will get rid of their misery, or, gives them a feel that someone cars. Keep on doing my friend, give those children a life to their lives, albeit, for a short while. God helps and blesses you Totoro.

     By the way, your english is better than mine.Thank you.

Hi Totoro,:)

Good for you to experience simple pleasures in life…and it’s great to have worked with children, first hand…But I think the word “judge” is a bit over the top…we don’t judge or give solutions out of context. The problem reverberates to the people…We are aware of the magnitude of the problem….We see, heard, observed and some of us here talked with the working children also, and we are just sharing our opinion and solutions that we think imperative to help alleviate the situation. There are many factors that affect child labor, right?. The scenario you have cited on the other hand is just a portion of a pie. What is the root cause, and why children ended up this way?

So, the children prefer to work and sometimes they are forced to work…Who force them to work? Where are the parents? I think the children you talked about chose to work and make money because the parents who are supposed to take care of them are nowhere to be found…or it is even more sinister finding out parents are the ones forcing their children to look for food….Children will develop a strange feeling of uncertainty, confusion, and eventually decide to take care of themselves and their families because they have no choice. They are oppressed, violated.

Discipline is really important in implementing something, whether rules or law…What is the use of education, like raising awareness and providing enough job if there is no strict implementation of the following?...Maybe the eagerness could lasts for about 24hours, and became lax afterwards…So, the things we fight for, is useless...Gone with the wind.

By the way, your English is good. A little improvement needed...avoid redundancy. Continue reading good books, magazines, and grammar books...I'm doing this myself...you know, for self improvement...:)

Have a nice day!
