Popular South Indian film star and UNICEF Celebrity Advocate, Ms. Trisha Krishnan, pledged her support to end all forms of child labor.
Speaking at the signature campaign and a rally organized by the labour department to mark the world day against child labour, she said, “Children are employed as they can be easily exploited. Child labour can severely affect children’s health, safety and cognitive development. These risks can have an irreversible impact on their development, health and wellbeing.”
Stressing on the importance of education as a magic bullet for a better future of a child, she told, “All children should go to school. Education is a magic bullet, as it can help children grow up in a safe and healthy environment for a better future.”
