Child labour at Sindh University

March 22, 2013

A UNIVERSITY is a place where students learn and get knowledge to make a better society. After a cursory glance on the canteens of the University of Sindh, one can easily witness cases of child labour. Minor boys, aged 12 to 16, work on daily wages there.

Many times debates are held regarding child labour at the university or a topic is given for essay contest.

Sadly, at the same place children are working to earn money.

Child labour is a serious social problem and measures should be taken at least by the university as we can make a model of a better society at the university.

I request the vice-chancellor of the university to take measures against child labour as soon as possible.
