Child labour in Pakistan

Pakistan as a nation is a developing country and consequently faces a wide array of social problems in which child labour is a social issue within Pakistan and is considered a violation of human rights by the United Nations....

Pakistani society is such that, a poor child can quite conveniently be deprived of basic education, only to feed the rest of his family members.

Pakistan does not have sound educational system under which a child can be adequately socialized into becoming a productive member of society. Education is not treated as a priority and inevitably child exploitation continues within our nation. 

Girls and boys are forced to work as domestic servants in the homes of the upper middle class or the richer elite.Thus class divisions become more prominent with the exploitation of the poor by the rich and this leads to an inequitable distribution of wealth and income.

Child labour is a complex problem which demands a range of solutions. There is no better way to prevent child labour than to make education compulsory. The West understood this a long time ago. Laws were enacted very early to secure continued education for working children; and now they have gone a step forward, and required completion of at least the preliminary education of the child before he or she starts work.
