Child Labour.

"Basic education is a crucial component of any effective effort to eliminate child labour. Studies indicate that child labour is associated with lower rates of school enrolment, higher drop-out rates, and lower academic performance" -www.childlabourdialogues.org

This is so true, and #ChildLabour shouldn't be encouraged...however, how do we completely eradicate child labour especially in under developed nations where poverty looms and it is the survival of the fittest? How do we eradicate child labour in rural communities where children are let out to hawk around some products for some financial sustainability of the family. I don't support child labour..but, I am trying to see better alternative(s) that might replace child labour in these communities, or what do you think about child labour? :)

This issue is peculiar, because presently we have some 2 children on our sponsored lists who do this in order to support their families..:)

What is child labour to you..? :)

I weep because we just lost a friend .
one of our coolest friends.
I weep for what ignorance could bring.

Last three years, we had a similar case where one of our girls was also 'abandoned' in the church for spiritual healing. She had her legs swollen as a result of the illness. It was a mild fracture, mama assured us. Everything would be fine. Haaa! Fracture? But this is not an hospital. Swiftly, with friends help, we got them moved to a hospital where it was diagnosed that our little friend had kidney problem. She spent more than 4months in the hospital! Today she is alive and in JSS 1.

Sadly, when people resolve to goin…

Thank You.
