Child Labour on the Increase

No Christmas for Children as they work to look for money

In this month of December, when schools have closed, hundreds of children are subjected to a lot of child labour. Each day in one village called Sokomoko, about 100 children leave their homes to go to maize farms to look for work to get pay. Many even do not have an opportunity to rest or play. Many are used a casual labourers by farmers while parents also take them along when going to harvest maize or beans. These children spent whole day in farms with out food. TYSA is running campaign ‘Keep the children out of Labour’ starting December till April Next year 2010.The TYSA sports field will be used to offer sporting and other forms of recreation for the children. Parents and or guardians will be give training on the rights of children at the TYSA girl’s resource centre 10US$ will offer sporting, recreation and a light meal each day for 15 days per child. Thanks you for being part of changing lives of children With Warm Regards Gichuki Francis
