Bangladesh has a population of 140 million, of which 65 million are children. The majority of the population is very poor with 35 % of the population living below one dollar a day.

Child labor could be considered as the most important human rights issue in Bangladesh, given the very large number of children and linkages with other rights violations. Employers from several industries often prefer children as they are cheaper and easier to handle than adults.

As a result children are deprived of their childhood and they are often working very long hours under hazardous conditions, which represent a threat towards their physical and mental health.

Be cautious and don’t let your children under extreme hard work. Let them free like a kite.

Thanks Elise. Child labor situation in Bangladesh is worst. Everybody should protect children from these kind of hard work.

Thank you for posting this video Mohammad. Your films do such a great job at bringing this serious issue to the forefront of child rights. Hopefully, when information such as this spreads, it can help put an end to child labor.
