These children are now at even greater risk of facing circumstances that are even more difficult and working longer hours.
Hundreds of children drop out of school every year to help their parents earn a livelihood. The more unfortunate ones are forced into child labour by organized crime racket while many others never get to see a school because of extreme poverty.
