Child labour 4 by GMBAkash Child labour 4 by GMBAkash
Child labour is not a new issue in Bangladesh.as children remain here one of the most vulnerable groups living under threats of hunger, illiteracy, displacement,exploitation,trafficking,physical and mental abuse. Although the issue of child labor has always been discussed, there is hardly any remarkable progress even in terms of mitigation

17.5 percent of total children of the 5-15 age group are engaged in economic activities. many of this children are engage in various hazardous occupations in manufacturing factories. factory owners prefer to employ children as they could pay them less and also able to keep their factories free from trade unionism. a child labour gets taka 400 to 700 ( 1 USD = 70 taka) per month, while an adult worker earns up to taka 5000 per month.

It is photographs likes these that make me come back to Deviant Art. You truly have a gift as a photojournalist and all of the photographs in your gallery leave my absolutely speechless. Thank you so much for sharing the plight of these children-photography can be a powerful tool to help create change and I really believe that your works can do this!

I have family in bangladesh and they are fortunately more well-off because we can send money back to them in times of need. They're neighbours, however, are not so lucky. The kids in that household had to give up school in order to work in local factories and farmland, and they could easily have been my cousins.
Its important people find out about these things and not turn a blind eye, and its heartening to see someone on DA doing exactly that.
