This blog is really important, so please read it, it is to make you guys aware of what is happening in this world that needs people like us to help others realise that they are wrong and we are right. Please forward this to make others aware.
In India, Dashehra, a festivle, is celebrated where the people of the country burn big statues of three people who are known to be evil. For this day, many of the people fund for making big statues of these three people. At least two to three lakhs are collected for the construction of these statues. On, the day of the festivle, the statues being comustable, burn in just a few seconds or minutes. But, if we look at it, the amout of work and the money is used for no good cause. Instead, we can use all of this money by doing something good for the poor. Poverty is seen almost everywhere. Poverty is the main source which cause another problem called child labour. So, in today’s blog, I would like to talk about ‘child labour’.
Children are our world’s future, if we don’t protect them, then bad times are going to come ahead. Due to poverty in most areas, many of the unfortunate families send their kids to work, so that they can earn money and help in the financial problem of the family. This leads to malnutrition in kids. In India, many of the times we can see children walking on the roads, trying to sell some products. The families don’t understand that the kids can get hurt by cars, they can fall down and can be seriousely injured. Many of the times we can also see women walking on the streets with a baby in their hands. They show the other people that the baby is sick and has fainted due to lack of food. But, mostly these kids are drugged. This is shocking ! Kids should not work until and unless they are 16 becaus they need good education so that they can make their countries proud after growing and can make a living themselves and also support their families in financial problems by working hard. The people in our countries don’t understand that working of little children at the wrong age is very dangerous. The children can be hurt and can die due to this. In many cases, children are told to work by some strangers and at the end of the day when the kids earn a bit of money, and then,those strangers steal their money and give those children nothing. Most of the workers have limited knowledge of what they are doing and send their kids to work without any idea about what kind of people there are in this world. Mostly, when girls are sent to work outside, the people there abusively touch them and also harass them many of the times. These cases many of the times result in rapes, sexual assaualt, kidnapping, and so many more things. These day, no girl or boy is safe. In earlier times, people used to think that if the child’s age is small then nothing will happen to him or her. But these days, not a single child is safe, if the child is either two or sixteen it doesn’t matter.
In this blog, I have told you a lot about how child labour is bad for the world. Now, I would like to help you in getting some solutions for this problem.
- We can help with collecting money. If we collect just a litttle amount of money for these kinds of families that are in such a financial problem, then, it would make us better as humans and will help the family too.
- Encourage the family to send their children to school. The children require good education. So, the families should be encouraged to send their children to school.
- Encourage the families to get good jobs for only the adults. Instead of roaming around on the streets and begging for others to give them money, we should encourage and help the adults to get safe and secure jobs.
- there are many solutions for problems like these. If you have and ideas, I would like you to comment down below and share you ideas. Please forward this to make everyone aware. I know that this problem is discussed many times but you can never stop anyone from letting others become aware. This is a request so please send this to as many people as you can to make them aware about this situation. Thank you all.
