GratiTUBE: Stop Child Labor
All that stands between millions of children and education is a Wall. A wall that we can together bring down.
A very short video by Yes We Can Change, with a very powerful message. A young tea delivery boy jumps outside a classroom window (with his slate in hand) to catch a glimpse of the class and learn. All he wishes is to be on the other side of the wall and be one of those many students reciting the table for number 2.
More than 150 million child laborers have aged too soon; lost their childhood and hope for a better future. As a society, somewhere, we have supported this. So often we see children working in a roadside eatery; in someone’s house; in a bus/ train. But we do little than feel sorry for the child.
It’s time to step up and give the ubiquitous chotu his/her right to a childhood and education. Let’s bring the wall down.
There are a number of non-profit organisations working for child rights and against child labor. You can support their campaigns against child labor by spreading the word, creating awareness, volunteering with and donating to organisations working for children.
