June 12 – Today the world is going to observe Anti-Child Labour Day, but for thousands of children here, the day has no meaning at all. These children would be toiling throughout the day in various business establishments and some would also be engaged in hazardous jobs. Deprived of childhood, sitting in a class is
still a distant dream for them.
Slumdogs of India.
Do you know that India has the largest number of child labourers under the age of 14 in the world? An estimated 12.6 million children are engaged in hazardous occupations.
