Description DM2008081513:GHAED:LABOUR:CHILDREN:JUN 1960 - Child Labour - These children are not playing with pebbles. Oh, no. They are tradesmen even at their tender age. They are counting garden eggs which they are helping to sell at the Accra Market. They wake early, work till late. No play for them. It's a familiar sight to us all. Seven and eight-year-olds hawking goods through our streets. But can we tolerate near-babies working eight, nine hours a day in our country? Child labour has been part of the Ghanaian traditional life of the country from time immemorial. Kids who should be sitting in school are doing heavy work in carpenters' and blacksmith' shops. Some of them who work in private homes are not much older than ten. (Photograph by Drum Photographer BAHA)
