What is child labour?

By Elie Tshitenge

Child labour consists of all types of work performed by children up to the age of 18 years that is damaging to their health, physical being, mental intelligence or moral and social development. Child labour can also be when the trafficking a child and forcing him or her to work, or sell drugs for example.

However, child work includes activities that are not harmful, which may contribute to the healthy development of a child, for example, helping your parents to wash the car, or in the kitchen or in their shop.

My message to parents is that they must warn their children.
