We Can’t do Child Labour Anymore

A boy lives in my neighbourhood. He is very poor. He works as a labourer to earn for himself and his family. His father fell ill when he was very young. His father was not able to work anymore. Therefore, the boy had to stop studies and faced child labour. Unfortunately, his father passed away after a few days. I was very sad to see all these and thought of helping the poor boy but couldn't do so as I was a kid too. When I started to attend the Social Media workshop, I learnt about photography. Now, I have taken this photo to convey that the children, affected by child labour across the world, are as if saying, “we won’t be a child labour anymore”. Stop child labour.
