Smile Foundation partnered with students and teachers from Hema Higher secondary School in Bhopal to raise awareness against child labor and its impact on young lives at a daylong event in Bhopal on Tuesday.
School students and volunteers from Smile Foundation took to roads with banners, child rights activists and sloganeering on April 30, to educate and advocate the ills of child labor among the city dwellers. Students with the teachers and school Principal and Smile volunteers took questions from general public on child labor and related laws to help them understand that it was against the Constitution of the country to employ or engage a child in any establishment under the age of 14.
