Discuss any three causes of child labour.
The causes of child labour are:
- One of the main causes of child labour is poverty. Many parents are unable to take their children to school and instead, put them to work in order to support the family.
- Another reason for child labour is illiteracy. Many illiterate families borrow money in an emergency and force their children to labour when they are unable to pay.
- Children are forced to work with risky elements due to a lack of acceptable labour opportunities and the professional necessities of particular sectors.
