NGOs Plan to Hold Mega Meet Against Child Labour in Orissa

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.

"We will raise the slogan 'Hum Bachche Saath Saath. Bal Mazdoori Ke Khilaf' (Children together against child labour) at the gathering."

At the conference, children will also form a national platform for 'Children against Child Labour,' said Mohanty.
