Παιδική δουλεία

Το Πακιστάν είναι μια αναπτυσσόμενη χώρα και παρουσιάζει πολλά κοινωνικά προβλήματα. Ένα από αυτά είναι η παιδική δουλεία, η οποία θεωρείται καταπάτηση των ανθρωπίνων δικαιωμάτων. Στο Πακιστάν τα παιδιά ηλικίας 5 - 14 υπερβαίνουν τα 40 εκατομμύρια. Από έρευνες που έγιναν το 2011 , 3.8 εκατομμύρια παιδιά από αυτή την ηλικιακή κατηγορία των 5 - 14 δουλεύουν. Το 50% των εργαζόμενων παιδιών είναι ηλικίας 5 - 9 ετών.

Child Labour, Pakistan, Poverty

Pakistan as a nation is a developing country and consequently she 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. 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 Programme on the Elimination of Child Labour). 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. 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.
