  3. Child Labour

    Debt bondage binds the child labourer into continuing being a child labourer. This debt occurs when the child’s family asks for some money in advance payment to hand a child, boy or girl to an employer. The child in most cases cannot work off to pay the debt and the family cannot buy the child back because they are poor and they do not have the money. The work place is made such that it almost impossible to work off the debt because expenses and interest rates are deducted from the child’s earnings. For the poor, there are a few sources of bank loans, government loans and credit sources, and if they are sources they are often not competent to qualify for them. Parents then send their children to become labourers lending money from the employers which accumulate with interest, this is bonded child labour and bonded child labourers can only be released after their parents make a large sum payment. Child labour is mainly caused by poverty, schooling problems and debt bondage. Child labour cannot be eradicated completely but it can be reduced by giving financial assistance to poor families, give loans with no interest rates so that they do not resort to factories for money and send their children to become labourers. Reduce taxes on foods mainly purchased by these people. Write up a strict legislation against child labour and give punishment to offenders such as closing down their factory and sentencing them to jail. Have literacy classes for the betterment of the child’s future. (Whad ya think guys'n gals? i finally did it. :D )
  4. Child Labour

    Children mostly in developing countries resort to child labour because of schooling problems. This could be because of not having access to schools , the children get restless at home and subsequently they are sent to supplement the household income, the lack of quality education causes parents to enter their children into something more profitable and so many children are put in factories which are looking for cheap and convenient labour. The children work for long hours with minimal pay and in often hazardous and unhealthy conditions which impairs their physical and mental development and so there is a stunted growth in children. Some parents cannot afford to put their children through school due to lack of money, these children remain illiterate and so do not have prospective opportunities for the future such as good jobs, they resort to getting their money through labour.
  5. Child Labour

    Child labour: An increasing problem. Child labour is a problem faced through out the world but mainly in developing countries . Asia and Africa serve as 90 percent of total child employment and Latin America as seven percent and the rest being three percent . The children work for many reasons such as poverty, schooling problems and debt bondage. Many children are forced into labour because of their extreme poverty situations. Child labour provides a source of income for poor families and so it enables poor families to earn a living which otherwise would not be possible , as an easy resort families often depend on child labour to essentially remain alive . For other families that are better off but still poor, the wages from their child’s labour account for some percentage of the total household income. A study conducted by the ILO Bureau of Statistics found that a child’s income accounted for 34 to 37 percent of the total household income in India. Many children are forced into pornography and prostitution at an early age because of their shoddy situations.

  10. Last Year In Grade 12

    Assalam-o-alykum I am a bright student and I dont like to slack behind, the only problem is that when I have a difficulty I get shy and lack confidence to ask the teacher for help and in that way I get behind, this is affecting my grades. i feel like I am bothering her and she will get angry and that she is judging me if I keep on asking...is this just me. Is there any suggestions that can help me, today I had so many doubts but after asking her help on one qs. I went to my seat without getting my other doubts answered, I was not so confident in her but then I think to myself I am messing up my future. SOmetimes i feel like crying for being this way, Any advice will be appreaciated

    Assalam-o-alikum One problem though, I donot care what the teacher thinks but the way he conducts himself with me is sometimes intimidating. He is all smiles and when I approah him to ask a question is suddenly turns into a frown, that kinda freaks me out and avoid eye contact, Geez if looks could kill, Id be long dead! ~ The Musafir ~
