CHL 1996-08: A Beginning in Child Labour: A Worst Form of Child Labour Discovered and Rescued: A 1993 KDF Experience

Child labour has long been in existence and efforts to deal with it, though a relatively recent development, have been undertaken. But why “a beginning in child labour”? This piece of literature deals with a certain beginning in child labour. It highlights the beginning which constitutes the most meaningful and valuable part of the experience of Kamalayan Development Foundation (KDF) in 1993. The then Kamalayan Development Center (KDC) itself was something new not only in the field of development work vis-à-vis child labour but also in the broader field of development work for children. Then, the discovery of a worst form of child labour was a new concern. And, the GO-NGO’s immediate response to the child workers’ pleadings for freedom was in the form of the inspection-rescue operation. And finally, all such events may go down in history as the start of the fight to eradicate the worst forms of child labour. Indeed, during the second half of 1993, the KDC, the discovery, the inspection-rescue operation, and, maybe, the fight against bonded child labour were just starting. They were in their respective formative stages. But these have proved to be effective ways toward beginning a broader process of human development. Thus, the author sums them up into a “beginning in child labour.”
