Title

A SOCIAL EVIL- CHILD LABOUR AND RELATED PSYCHOSOCIAL AND HEALTH HAZARDS WITH REFERENCE TO PURNEA EAST CD BLOCK, BIHAR, INDIA

Authors

Abstract

The study is an attempt to make in depth enquiry into the phenomenon of child labour with children from marginalized families becoming child labourers, often under hazardous, exploitative and personal conditions. The study examines children engaged in hazardous/non-hazardous activities in the age group of 5-14 years and health risks associated with their work. A total of 95 household samples were taken consisting of 70 rural and 25 urban households. Children in the study never attended school, or did so only irregularly between spells of migrant labour. This underlines the serious nature of the exploitation to which children from poor families are exposed. The children are exploited by employers. Even when children move as family units with parents to work in far away locations, they are exposed to the difficult living conditions in which their families have to live best illustrated by the workers engaged in brick kilns. All child labourers were paid a wage. This explains the well-established nature of child labour, its widespread acceptance and prevalence. This could be seen as an example of parental helplessness, or their desire to get their child to learn a trade, or just a way out of poverty and insecurity, or a combination of all these factors. Working environment and nature of work influence health of child labourers significantly. Children’s exposure to psychosocial hazards at work and their experiences of exhausting work, neglect and abuse are significant indicators of harm to their health and well-being.
