PHOTO

Child Laboring, Zoraih: Photojournalist 2008

Description

In this photo there is a girl of 8 to 9 years old. She is breaking red building blocks with hammer. She has covered her head with black piece of cloth having white flowers on it. She is working in sun without any shelter. She is busy with her work and her face seems gloomy. There is a paper box beside her and a black big umbrella is behind her. She is alone in this picture. There is a big building in background of this picture. She is surrounded by pieces and piles of crushed red building blocks. She is wearing white cloths which are quite filthy, dusty and worn out. She seems very tired and exhausted.

Meaning

We can infer from this picture that situation of child labours is very terrible and children who are doing child laboring are most of the time helpless. This picture shows the difficulties of a child working in factories and in other places for little pay. As we can see from this picture the little girl’s face is gloomy and she is busy with her work it means that children who are doing child laboring are most of the time not happy with their life.  From her dirty cloth we can infer that child labours are working in unhygienic places and in unhygienic conditions. The piles of crushed blocks illustrate her hard work.
