Child labour not inevitable part of economic Growth

This is such a huge tragedy that we have accepted child labor as a necessary evil even in this age. This age where we know that for road to progress there is no short cut except to educate our youth. Pakistanis are a young nation with majority of its population constituting of youth. Today if we deny their right to be educated then tomorrow we would have no way to raise their standard of living. These little hands we see in streets and markets do not deserve to use tool kits instead it is our fault and a great injustice. They deserve pencils, pens, rubbers, sharpeners and bags on their shoulders.

Alas! these are children without fate.
