Description DM2008081515:GHAED:LABOUR:CHILDREN:JUN 1960 - Child Labour - No money for schooling, so young boy left his studies to earn a living by cleaning cars in the street. 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)
