Campaign Against Child Labour (CACL), a national network of more than 6,000 non-governmental organisations (NGOs), is planning to hold a three-day national convention here to protest against child labour in the country.
Nearly 1,000 children from across the country will join the three-day national convention Nov 20-22 in Bhubaneswar, to raise their voices against child labour, CACL national convenor Ranjan Mohanty told IANS.
"Child labour is not just a welfare issue but a continuing social problem. It is a violation of human rights that stems from the prevailing inequalities and exploitative socio-economic structure in the country," he said.
At the conference, children will also form a national platform for 'Children against Child Labour,' said Mohanty.
