Child Labour

Jainal works in silver cooking pot factory. He is 11 years old. He has been working in this factory for three years. His work starts at 9 a.m. and ends at 6 p.m. For his work he gets 700 taka (10 USD) for a month. His parents are so poor that they can not afford to send him to school. According to the factory owner, the parents do not care for their children; they send their kids to work for money and allegedly don’t feel sorry for these small kids. Dhaka 2008

  1. Hi, Georgy!

    Thank you for much for posting these… Am researching about Child Labor for a paralegal training we’ll be conducting next week. As long as governments haven’t been serious about implementing the Convention on the RIghts of the Child and other international treaties addressing child labor, then this problem would continue festering across the globe.

    Again, thank you and God bless!

  22. Wow Georgy, seeing these pictures you posted really really touch my heart…………………….I’m a 16 years old girl and sometimes I say words like “I hate my life”………….”My life sucks”, anytime I get in a fight with my family…………but after reading this article and seeing these pictures I wish I could take back those words for I now realize that my life is perfect when compared to these childrens’. I also saw the picture of the children with bricks on their head, and I said to myself “Wow, they are so strong and courageous………….I can believe someone would treat a child like that, it’s just horrible……………….” I would also like to ask for your permission to use some of your pictures for my project in school. I pray we would all help stop Child Labor, for every child deserves a right to education, a wonderful childhood, and just being a kid.

  23. Hello Georgy

    I kindly ask your permission to use your fantastic yet emotional photo’s, to be displayed as part of my research for my art project, to raise awareness of child labour.
    I would reference your images to your requirements.
