Paragraph on Child Labour in 250 Words
Child labour is a harmful act which involves children below 14 in work. It harms the children to a great extent and keeps them away from school. The percentage of child labour is rising around the whole world. Child labour is also one of the acute problems in Bangladesh.
There are some reasons for child labour. The increase in the gap between the rich and poor is the main problem. Besides, increasing the cost of living is another reason for child labour. The poor families are compelled to send their children in work to meet the living costs. In Bangladesh, population growth is also responsible for this problem.
According to research, it is found that millions of young children were involved in illegal work in recent decades. According to the International Labor Organization, it is found that around 215 million children under the age group 5-17 years are working in the extremely risky and exploitative fields as they belong to extremely poor families.
Most of the children are involved in commercial agriculture, manufacturing, mining, fishing, production, domestic service, drug trade, prostitution, garments factories, workshops, hotels, battery factories and so on.
It is recorded that, approximately 114 million (53%) child labourers are in Asia and the Pacific, 65 million (30%) are in sub-Saharan Africa and 14 million (7%) are in Latin America.
