Stop Child Labour

The future of a community is in the well being of its children. The above fact is beautifully expressed by Wordsworth in his famous lines ³child is father of the man´. So it becomes imperative for the health of a nation to protect its children from premature labor which is hazardous to their mental, physical, educational and spiritual development needs. It is urgently required to save children from the murderous clutches of social injustice and educational deprivation, and ensure that they are given opportunities for healthy, normal and happy growth.
