Students are introduced to the topic of child labour through a series of worksheets and accompanying photos exploring the questions:

  • What is child labour?
  • What types of work do child labourers do?
  • Why does child labour occur?
  • How does child labour affect children?
  • What can be done to end child labour?

The worksheets include activities suitable for Geography, English and Civics & Citizenship study. Two of the worksheets and photos focus on case studies from India.
