Child labour is not a new issue in Bangladesh. 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 labour has always been discussed, there is hardly any remarkable progress even in terms of mitigation. 17.5% of total children of the 5-15 age groups are engaged in economic activities. Many of these 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 400 to 700 taka ( 1 USD = 70 taka) per month, while an adult worker earns up to 5000 taka per month.

Take a look at these heartbreaking photographs of child labour In Bangladesh.
