Child labor in Uganda

Posted by Eyeing Africa (?, United States) on 3 February 2009 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

In rural Uganda, kids often as young as 4 will start to work in the fields with their parents.

nice documentary shot. an almost good triangulation of the kids... an eye catcher... not to mention the bitter necessity of their situation.

For surely, man must be ashamed of mistreating a fellow man whether young or old, take a deep breath and ming your actions. Do to others what you want others to do to you!

our government is doing so little intervention about this and yet so much is spent on government officials who even do nothing. such is the state of an african child and more so a typical ugandan child. lets rise together and do the little we can.

our government needs to do alot about this disheartening scenario.. parents should also ensure that they produce children they are able to take good care of and defend at all times..such is basically rooted in poverty and ignorance... we ought to come out and adresss the root causes..God bless Uganda.
