President Md Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina have called for a more effective role of private organisations, individuals, national and international agencies, civil society and media alongside the government to prevent child labour.

"The government has fixed child labour elimination as one of the indexes to achieve Sustainable Development Goals. So the government is determined to keep children safe in all fields including disaster and conflicts," President Hamid said in a message marking the World Day Against Child Labour.

The theme of the day this year is "In conflicts and disasters, protect children from child labour".

The President appreciated the theme saying that it is very time-befitting.

In a separate message on the occasion, PM Hasina said her government has formulated Domestic Worker Protection and Welfare Policy 2015 to ensure rights of children working as household activities.

She said National Child Labour Welfare Council with the association of ILO has been working to strengthen the capacity of divisional, district and upazila committees to eliminate child labour, according to BSS.
