Child Labour Continues to be Tolerated and Accepted

Despite Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Act, there are 10.1 million working children between the age of 5 to 14 in India. 

In India, the problem of Child Labour continues to pose a challenge before our government. With very little or no exposure and access to education, children are often left in the lurch, with no choice but to start working. As per the Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Act, 1986, amended in 2016, it is a cognizable criminal offense to employ a Child for any work, yet there are 10.1 million working children between the age of 5 to 14 in India.

As we speak, there are thousands of others who are giving up on basic education and their dreams. Poverty, being one of the major causes, acting as a push factor.
