Child Labour

Child Labour

In Afghanistan, around one-third of children are required to work in order to provide for themselves and for their families. Street vendors, water carriers, cardboard collectors, shoe polishers, domestic servants, are the kind of odd jobs done by Afghan children.

The child (especially boys) plays an important economic role in the Afghan family structure, mainly because the little money earned by their parents is hardly enough to feed the hungry mouths in the family. Additionally, due to cultural practices, Afghan mothers rarely choose to seek employment outside their homes. In this situation, the family relies upon the economic contribution of the child, even if it means the child is left begging on the streets.
