Respected Principal, teachers and my dear friends, a wonderful morning to all of you. Today on this special occasion, I would like to speak some words on the topic- Child Labour.
Many children are forced into child labour due to domestic violence and poverty. They have to take up difficult and most often underpaid jobs to support their families from a very young age. These children never get to have a childhood, since their innocence and youth is essentially snatched from them, taking away their chance to dream and have a happy childhood.
Child labour is a huge problem in India, with thousands of children forced to work in dismal conditions when they should be playing with their friends and going to school instead.
To conclude, it is our responsibility to protect these children and their dreams, and thus we must do our best to prevent child labour! Thank you for listening to me so attentively.
