A young boy of migrant workers

 

Migrants’ kids at risk: CDRI
Instead of attending classes, many of the children take up jobs to add to the family’s earnings in between remittances or to make up for shortfalls. Children from migrant households are 27 per cent more likely to have income-earning work, and for child labourers who were already employed before the adults left, their burden increases; migration is likely to add 7.4 hours on children’s workload per week, according to the report.

    Instead of efforts applied by verious organisations children are still forced to work as child labourers because of poor financial conditions of their parents, failure in government economy, poor administration, lack of awareness among the people and in lack of proper schemes introduced by the governments. As a result Children lose there Golden period of life and innocence which is a prerequisite of a child.
    But according to my personal opinion it is necessary for children (teen agers) to work as part time job ( Under care of their parents or organisations) to earn the ability and a better experience of self creation of jobs for themselves, which helps them to survive in all conditions.

    I thank God for having blessed my childhood. I hope he doesn't forget others who have been or are less misfortune.

My Reflection

My Reflection

This site is a tribute to Buddhism. Buddhism has given me a tremendous inspiration to be who and where I am today. Although I came to America at a very young age, however, I never once forget who I am and where I came from. One thing I know for sure is I was born as a Buddhist, live as a Buddhist and will leave this earth as a Buddhist. I do not believe in superstition. I only believe in karma.

Tipitaka: The pali canon (Readings in Theravada Buddhism). A vast body of literature in English translation the texts add up to several thousand printed pages. Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available here at Access to Insight, this collection can nonetheless be a very good place to start.
