CHILD LABOR IN PAKISTAN

(Rizwan Arshad, Lahore)

Child Labor is one of the ever growing social problems faced by Pakistan since time immemorial. This causes adverse impact on mental, physical, moral, and social life of children. In India the figure of child labor has crossed above 44 million, in Pakistan it is from 8 to 10 million, in Bangladesh 8-12 million, in Brazil 7 million, whereas it is 12 million in Nigeria. Unfortunately with the passage of time, there is an increase in child labor, ranking Pakistan on third position of child and forced labor. According to an estimate of Child Rights Movement (CRM) National Secretariat, 12.5 million children in Pakistan victimized in forced labor.

Causes

According to an estimate by International Labor Organization (ILO), poverty is the primary and major reason behind the menace of child labor. Talking about Pakistan, the country has high per capita of approximately $ 1900. The daily wages of a middle class person in Pakistan is around $ 6 on average. An average Pakistani has to feed nine or ten people with this minimal wage.Another big cause of child labor is high rate of inflation. In the year 2008, 17.2% of the total country’s population lives below poverty line. This is the lowest figure in the history of Pakistan. Due to immense poverty prevailing in the country, parents urge their children to work in order to reach the target of take-home salary.
 


According to a research conducted by Akhtar, Fatima, &Sadaqt, another main cause of child labor in Baluchistan’s fishing sector was the low quality of education, lack of job opportunities, and lack of economic progress in the region. High dropout rates and low literacy rates is the major highlight in the province. Making on effective policies on quality education can considerably reduce the ever growing rate of child labor.

Child Labor in Pakistan

In Pakistan children aged 5-14 are above 40 million.During the last year, the Federal Bureau of Statistics released the results of its survey funded by ILO’s IPEC (International Program on the Elimination of Child Labor). The findings were that 3.8 million children age group of 5-14 years are working in Pakistan out of total 40 million children in this age group; fifty percent of these economically active children are in age group of 5 to 9 years. Even out of these 3.8 million economically active children, 2.7 million were claimed to be working in the agriculture sector. Two million and four hundred thousand (73%) of them were said to be boys.

Steps Taken by Government on Child Labor in Pakistan

There are number of lawsregarding the prohibition of child labor, or regulating the working conditions for adolescent workers. The most significant laws are:

• The Factories Act 1934
• The West Pakistan Shops and Establishments Ordinance 1969
• The Employment of Children Act 1991
• The Bonded Labor System Abolition Act 1992
• The Punjab Compulsory Education Act 1994
• The Employment of Children Rules 1995

Constitutional Provisions 

Article 3: the state shall ensure the eradication of all forms of exploitation and the regular fulfillment of fundamental principle, from each according to his ability and to each according to his work.

Article 11(3): No child below the age of 14 years shall be engaged in any factory or mine or any other hazardous employment.

Article 25(A): The state shall provide free and compulsory education to all children of the age of five to sixteen years in such manner as determined by law.
Article 37(e): The state shall make provision for securing just and humane conditions of work, ensuring that women and children are not employed in vacations unsuited to their age or sex, and for maternity benefits for women in employment.

Child labor remains one of the major problems troubling Pakistani children. Many laws have been passed in an attempt to limit or eradicate this menace from our society. Unfortunately, these laws are globally ignored. Around 11 million children between 4 – 14 age groups are behind the operations of country’s factories, working in even hazard conditions.
 


 

Minimum Work Age in Pakistan

According to Employment of Children Act 1991 a “child” is categorized as a person below 14 years of age and an “adolescent” is below 18 years of age. The Constitution of Pakistan also regards the minimum work age as 14 years. However, the 18th amendment has actually risen the minimum age up to 16 years without amending the labor laws, this has increased the contradiction. Article 25(A) of the Constitution says that the state now has to provide compulsory education to all children between the ages of five and sixteen years, which means that, a child can’t be allowed to work before 16 years of age.

There are certain exceptions to this law. It says clearly that no child has to be employed in any occupation which is hazardous for children except the family business or in any (training) school established, assisted and recognized by the government.

Reviews & Comments

Poverty is a big issue in Pakistan to be debated on, All the politicians talk about everything except for poverty. Child labour in Pakistan will increase if the main issue of poverty won't be solved as soon as possible. Children do not get to eat anything so they will have to work for themselves.

My teacher gave my group a project on the topic social issues in pakistan. And i choose this topic child labour In pakisatn. And working on this project I realize that how child labour is a shape of crime. My opinion is that govt should took step for prohibition of this crime. And higher education should should be free in all over the country.

Contstitunoal provisions for the public and private sector are sufficient to address exploitations. The need of time is that governing policy, administering business and industry should tie in with, the constitutional framework thus curbs capitalist greed-driven practices in check.

Solution of this problem is not snatching away job of poor children but making such societies in which no child has to leave education and earn. The fact that educated individuals don’t get proper jobs in this country, also discourages underprivileged people.

This exploitation of child labour cannot be stopped by child
labour laws only. In this regard, other measures such as more facilities for
education and vocational training are indispensable. A group of social
volunteers comprising workers, employers, government officers, media
experts, members of non-government organisations and educationalists
should make earnest and sincere efforts to achieve the objective of
minimising child labour and improve their living conditions as much as

people.. Pakistan was formed on the basis of equal rights rather than on "ISLAM". if u have a critical eye and thinking, 26 crore muslims are living in india and they have all their proper RELIGIOUS freedom. Pakistan was formed because Muslims were not given EQUAL rights in economy, social life and education. Religion was never be the basis for FORMATION of a consolidated state. Infact we manipulated the basic concept and developed a new concept of Islamization in Pakistan. as a result it turned into a extremist state rather than a free democratic and liberal state.

In Pakistan you can easily find out little children who are wandering here and there,they are picking garbage,they are walking through each and every door to find out their better destiny.

For killing all of their griefs,they are drinking their own tears.. They are not willing to live this miserable life,absolutely they want to change it for good, they want to change their destiny,but unfortunately they are waiting for a change..Of course a better morning, a bright start!!!!..Is it possible??

hello,every one
it made me worried to see many people coming in own cars and giving eatables to the young persons,so called labors sitting along the road side,G9/4,Peshawar mode,Islamabad,where I do reside.They might be thinking that they are doing a fine job while providing them with the food,but i have been frequently asking and interacting with these young men. They are just perpetuating to be labors ,but big dodgers.So who is comparatively at fault,the helpers or the young labors.Does not this practice add to child labor.

Hi! one bright aspect of this article is that it is very helpful for those who want to work on choronic porblem of child labor.On the other side it is real picture of our social scenario in which every icnreasing number of child labor is making it worst. Government as well as civilians should take some immediate measures against child labor.here is some suggestions from my side for reducing child labor.
1 select those famalies who have at least 3 childrens and are below than poverty level and a special income support fund should create for assisting them on monthly basis.
2 There must be significant assistance in shape of montly allownces not below than Rs 5000, free uniform, free transportation service,free books, for those children who can not get eduaciton due to financial problem.
3 There must be annual awarness confences or seminars in every city in which the drawbacks of child labor should be high light. May ALLAH help us to get rid from this problem.

پاکستان میں آج تک اسلام صرف اس حد تک نافذ کیا گیا ہے کہ رمضان میں ھوٹل بند کر دیے جائیں خواہ کوئی بیمار ھو یا بوڑھا ھو یا بچہ ھو ۔

جب کہ دوسری طرف عدالتی نظام وہی مائی لارڑ اور می لارڈ والا مناسب سمجھا گیا ھے ۔اقتصادی نظام وہی یھودیوں والا کیپیٹلزم بھترین قرار دیا گیا ھے ۔

ان حالات میں اگر کوئی یہ کہتا ھے کہ پاکستان اسلام کی خاطر بنا تھا تو مجھے بے اختیار ھنسی آتی ھے

"Our greatest natural resource is the minds of our children." - Walt Disney
Quick facts about child labour
• Globally, 218 million children are child labourers
• 126 million of these children are engaged in hazardous work
• 73 million working children are less than 10 years old
• Every year, 22,000 children die in work-related accidents
• The largest number of working children-122 million-are in the Asia-Pacific region
Poor families need to keep as many family members working as possible to ensure income security and survival. This makes it very difficult for poor families to invest in their children's education. In fact, educating a child can be a significant financial burden.
Pakistan is very unfortunate being ruled by greedy poeple for decades......Governments has always been deaf towards sensitive social issues like child labour. The countries that don't invest in their children...actually are not investing in their futures.
Everyone should work at individual level to start the process.
I am born & raised in Pakistan but living in Canada for couple of years for seeking higher education.
I observed that fairness & hardwork is the key to success.

Main thing is that Wht r the Root Causes of "Child Labor in Pakistan"........? Any body commented on it.....????? Kindly think over it and watch by ur self by starting from your home first.........! Dear All,,,, we have to help our needy people by all means individually/together to arrange living stuff first & then education for all needy ppl (as per real Islamic values & tradition in view of current scenario around the globe)........! In past, present & future "All the times" Govt remain busy in their own establishments.........Major responsibility comes on the shoulder of the Govt to take care of all by all means even the animals.........! but the financial situation in the whole country was always created by the politicians to finance their own interests AND who will take care of Makhlooq-e-Khudda (Creature of Allah) that Allah Pak loves His creature more than a mother.........! We need to work on it rather improving articles/assignments/effort appriciation etc etc..........! Have we ever heard that in Westren Countries that they leave their nationals in open air who could not support themself....not at all........even their animals cats, dogs all are living in safe hands(max of them but not 100%).......this could be summarized/briefed by any visitor of those countries in his own words that how the Western countries are taking care of their ppl, animals & things...........! There they are making Islamic experimental efforts and they are sucessfull in it........! where we stand.............?

WHAT ARE SOME SOLUTIONS TO CHILD LABOR?
Not necessarily in this order:
Increased family incomes
Education — that helps children learn skills that will help them earn a living
Social services — that help children and families survive crises, such as disease, or loss of home and shelter
Family control of fertility — so that families are not burdened by children
The ILO’s International Programme for the Elimination of Child Labour (IPEC) has explored many programs to help child labourers. See IPEC documents on the www.ilo.org site.
The 1989 Convention on the Rights of the Child calls for children to participate in important decisions that will affect their lives.
Some educators and social scientists believe that one of the most important ways to help child workers is to ask their opinions, and involve them in constructing "solutions" to their own problems. Strong advocates of this approach are Boyden, Myers and Ling; Concerned for Working Children in Karnataka, India; many children’s "unions" and "movements," and the Save the Children family of non-governmental organizations.

A way to prevent Child labor is to donate money so that a child can have an education. Another one is to build a home for the children. In there they will not be allowed to work, but only to learn! There they will have a chance to have a better life. After all they are our future!
