  2. 2. Today Pakistan is facing a lot of social problems but some are very common in Pakistan. Which are destroying our society and also economy of Pakistan. Like Child labour, Poverty, Illiteracy, Population growth, Terrorism, Smuggling, and Drug abuse etc. The topic which I have selected is “Child labour”. It is a global issue. Child labour is one of the most common problem in Asia and also in Pakistan.
  3. 3. • I decided to choose Child labour topic, because I was very unfamiliar with this subject. Here and there, I was hearing that people my own age had to work in horrible conditions. Some were getting trafficked others couldn't go to School, because they had to work for their families. The main concept was that Children/human were getting mis-treated. • I want to point out this awkward concept in our society.
  4. 4. Child (birth – 17 yrs) Adults (18 – 25 yrs) Youth (25 – 50 yrs) Old (50 - death) child adult youth old
  5. 5. “Child Labour” is work of children that harms them or exploits them in someway e.g. • Physically. • Mentally. • Morally or blocking access to Education. United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) defines “Child” as anyone below the age of 18, and “Child Labour” as some type of work performed by children below age 18.
  6. 6.  Pakistan has laws that limit Child labour, but the laws are often ignored. An estimated 40 million children work in Pakistan’s factories.  50% percent of the economically active children are in age group of 5 to 9 years.  Out of these 3.8 million economically active workers, 2.7 million were claimed to be children.  in the agriculture sector. 73% of them were said to be boys.
  7. 7.  During the last year, the Federal Bureau of Statistics released the results of its survey funded by International Labour Organization (ILO’s) and International Program on the Elimination of Child Labour (IPEC). The findings were that 3.8 million children of age group 5-14 years are working in Pakistan out of total 40 million children in this age group.  While buffaloes may cost up to 15,000 rupees, children are sold at prices between 500 and 2,000 rupees.
  8. 8.  All human beings are equal.  A child’s right to live in security and peace, and enjoy human dignity and protection under the responsibility of the parents.  According to Our beloved Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (S.A.A.W) Children should be taught to write and read.
  9. 9. THE CHILD LABOUR Prohibition and Regulation ACT, 1986 •HOURS AND PERIOD OF WORK. •OVERTIME. •WEEKLY HOLIDAY.
  10. 10. Causes of child labour are:  Poverty  Unemployment of elders  Tradition to follow family business  Parental illiteracy  Failure of law
  11. 11.  Child labour forces some children to steal things from others in order to satisfy their daily living.  Child labour deprives a child from the basic right of education.  Child labour effect the children mentally and physically. For example:
  12. 12. We need to see both sides of the pictures. We just can’t close our EYES, IGNORE and THINK things would get better one day…
  13. 13.  Awareness must be raised and parents should attention to the education of their children.  Child Labour Laws should be strictly put into practice.
  14. 14.  We have to distribute the education free of coast, give flame to the candle of education and distribute the light of knowledge among the people as our Holy Prophet (PBUH) also says that “get knowledge and distribute among others.”
  15. 15.  If we want success then we have to act upon these principles and then our country can easily get rid of this problem.
  16. 16.  People don’t know the importance of education. That’s why most of children remain illiterate.  Child laborers are the economy runners of our country.  The importance of children and their value cannot be denied.  They should be given their due rights.  Education and work should go side by side with proper balance.
  17. 17.  Poor Pakistan Families really have no other options.  They really need to enforce their laws.
