Using children to do heavy work is injustice, children involved in heavy work are said to be exploited. Most of these children suffer from Tuberculosis (TB), chest pain, headache, stomach ache and have retarded growth among others.
Children drawn in child labour are mostly found deep in villages where poverty is paramount, markets, industries and so on.
According to the declaration of the right of a child, children must be protected against any act of violence, abuse, exploitation and discrimination as well as all forms and hostage taking.
To help government do its best to combat child labour, every body should carry out their responsibility and not engage children into forced labour.
Let us protect our children from anything that can harm their health or affect their education.
