World Against Child Labour Day 2020: Know when and how to celebrate this day started and what is the theme in this year 2020
Hello friends, today is World Against Child Labour Day 2020. It is celebrated every year on 12 June. It was started in the year 2002. Started to create awareness about the difficulties of child labourers worldwide. Children are the future of our country. Not only the country but the future of the world are children. But in today’s time, there are so many children who are forced to go to school, work instead of playing.
From the age of 5, many children are engaged in these activities:
How worrying is the work of children in this way? There are many children around the world who do a lot of work. Let me tell you that from the age of 5 many children are engaged in these works. Which are harmful to their health and development.
These children are small enough to do these tasks. This reads a huge loss to their mental and social development. This is why the movement against child labor was started.
History of World Against Child Labour Day:
Let us tell you that many children in the age group of 5 to 17 are engaged in such work, which deprives them of a normal childhood. Such as education, proper health care, and leisure time, etc. In the year 2002, the United Nations body that controls the world of work. This International Level Organization (ILO) launched the World Day Against Child Labour because of the way children work.
The theme of the 2020 world against Child Labour Day:
The theme of World Against Child Labour Day is laid every year. This year the theme of World Against Child Labour Day is “to protect children during the COVID-19 epidemic”. The significance of this theme is that the spread of the Corona epidemic has led to a lockdown situation in many countries.
In such a situation the lives of many people flowed and due to this the lives of many children have also been affected. Because of this, the theme of World Labour Prohibition Day 2020 is to protect children from the corona.
Children are the future of every country:
In many places, many kinds of work are done by small children. Child labour is a trade. It is the right of children to play since childhood. Education is the right of children. There are many children in the country, whose childhood has been taken away by child labour. We all have to stop this practice of wages from children running together. Children are the future of any country. Child labour has to be stopped for the development of the country.
The best way to stop child labour is to eradicate poverty: Sharad Malhotra
Poverty is the biggest reason for children working in this way. There is a need to tackle poverty before. In my opinion, eradicating poverty is the best way to stop child labour. Because people see them as helping, rather than educating their children. Survival is the only thing that leads to child labour. There should be some standing laws regarding all these.
