Consequences of child labour

Jump to: navigation, search

Hi all,

Child labour will not break the cycle of poverty. Most of these people will never have a chance of attaining a basic level of education to improve their standard of living. Eventually, these individuals will have families and they will not have much to offer to their children. This entails enlarged illegal settlements for urban areas. It is mostly in these areas that crime thrives and these areas are not catered for in terms of national development. Most of these areas lack clean drinking water, sanitation and proper housing just to mention a few. There will be no sustainable development for the youth.
