From my slideshow, you have seen how many children cannot enjoy their childhood because they are forced into child labor. Let me share with you the causes of child labor and possible solutions to this big problem.
Some of the causes of child labor are (i) poverty; (ii) huge demand for unskilled workers such as children; (iii) early marriage; and (iv) cost of education. Most children who are victims of child labor are poor. They have to work so that they can earn to support their family in buying basic needs such as food. Another cause of child labor is the demand for unskilled workers such as in construction sites, factories, and serving food at restaurants. Children working in these places are paid less but good enough to help in the income of the family. Another cause of child labor is early marriage. Early marriage is common in most countries and religions. Early marriage makes the child go into child labor and work to support his or her family. Another cause of child labor is the cost of education. Most schools are expensive and many poor families can’t afford to send their children to schools. The parents will choose their children to work rather than go to school so that they can eat.
What do you think are the solutions to this big global problem? First possible solution is by providing free education to children. With this, poor parents can take this chance to send their children to school. If many children are in school, then, the use of child labor will decrease. Another possible solution is awareness to parents that sending their children to work is harmful to their children's future and is not legal. Creating a demand for skilled and trained workers will also disqualify children from working. Thus, it will reduce child labor.
There may be more solutions that you can think of. I will be happy to hear your suggestions.
