Samvad Interviews Families About Issue of Child Labor

Last week, Samvad producers ventured out around Ahmedabad, to interview children who have stopped going to school, so that they can work to support their families.



The children are engaged in a variety of professions- from bricklaying to printing invitations, homemaking, tending tea stalls or shoe shops, and making kites.


Samvad producers also spoke with parents, about why their children are working. The interviews will be featured in Samvad's upcoming film on the use of child labor. Stay tuned for more!
