Short Paragraph/Speech on “Child Labour” Complete Paragraph or Speech for Class 10, Class 12 and Graduation and other classes.

Child Labour

Good morning everyone. My objective today is to talk to you about child labour. Do you know that of every 100 children in the world today, 16 of them are child labourers, 12 of them are in its worst form, and many will never go to school? There are 246 million child labourers in the world today, most are in developing countries. They are working on farms, plantations, mines or even construction site, breathing in noxious fumes and exposed to harsh chemicals or dangers. Child labour is the employment of children under an age determined by law or custom. This practice is considered exploitative by many countries and international organizations. We can solve these problems by improving child labour legislation and laws and also by increasing the quality, relevance and access to education. Many countries have national child labour laws that establish a minimum age for work and regulate working conditions. It is important to extend protection so that laws cover the main places where children work. Education is also a key to end the exploitation of children.

If an education system is to attract and retain children, its quality and relevance must be improved as well. The main obstacle in achieving universal primary education is only the inability or the unwillingness of government to provide quality educational facilities for poor children in rural areas. If child labour continues, the children will not be able to get a good education and our society cannot improve. So, let’s put our hands together to stop child labour.

Thank you
