Education is a crucial component of any effective effort to eliminate child labour. There are many interlinked explanations for child labour. Children’s participation in the labour force is endlessly varied and infinitely volatile, responding to changing market and social conditions. Child labour is a stubborn problem that, even if overcome in certain places or sector, will seek out opportunities to reappear in new and often unanticipated ways.
Child labour in India, somehow has become a social norm that we accept and tolerate in our society. This exploitative and abusive practice will continue unless society adopts a zero tolerance attitude towards it. Children continue to be exploited and abused because the state and the people do not address children’s issue comprehensively and effectively.
When children are forced to work long hours their ability to get adequate nourishment and to attend school is limited, preventing them from gaining education. Vocational education and training have provided the skills needed for gainful employment, which in turn contributes to local and national development. While child labour can be an obstacle to education, at the same time education is instrumental in the prevention of child labour. Through education, parents and children alike become more aware of its benefits, and the harm that child labour can cause. And access to education helps to reduce poverty, one of the root cause of child labour.
What we actually have to do is just to educate them as much as we can.
And ask others to motivate childrens for education
