The complex factors contributing to child labour, such as poverty, lack of access to education, and weak enforcement of labour laws, as mentioned in your report, are worrying. The consequences of child labour are equally complex, leading to a perpetuation of the cycle of poverty, unfulfilled potential, and long-term societal issues. The government must bolster its efforts to enforce child labour laws and regulations, with a particular focus on industries where child labour is most prevalent. It is high time that we collectively address the grave issue of child labour in Pakistan. Every child deserves a childhood free from exploitation and an opportunity to build a brighter future.
