World Day against Child Labour on June 12

Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL -

HY­DER­ABAD—Like else­where across the globe, Pak­istan will ob­serve the World Day against Child Labour on June 12 reaf­firm­ing its com­mit­ment to com­bat the men­ace and help de­velop an at­mos­phere con­ge­nial for all chil­dren.

Sev­eral NGOs along with rel­e­vant de­part­ments, in­clud­ing the so­cial wel­fare de­part­ment, both at fed­eral and pro­vin­cial lev­els are at­tempt­ing to come up with a com­pre­hen­sive ap­proach to pro­tect chil­dren against pos­si­ble ex­ploita­tion and pres­sures deny­ing them of their rights of ed­u­ca­tion, health and qual­ity life.

The In­ter­na­tional La­bor Or­ga­ni­za­tion (ILO) launched the first World Day in 2002 as a way to high­light the plight of work­ing chil­dren and to serve as a cat­a­lyst for the grow­ing world­wide move­ment against child labour.

Na­tional Man­ager So­ci­ety of Pro­tec­tion of Rights of Child (SPARC), Kashif Ba­jeer in­formed APP here on Wed­nes­day that the coun­try’s con­sti­tu­tion guar­an­teed equal rights for ed­u­ca­tion and health to all chil­dren ir­re­spec­tive of their caste, creed and ori­gin.—APP
