Concerns raised over child labour at Bosuso

Child labourThe School Management Committee (SMC) of Divine Wisdom Preparatory School at Bosuso in the Eastern Region, has expressed concern about pupils who work in the farms instead of being in the classroom.

The SMC said the children cart cocoa beans and food crops instead of going to school.

Mr Awuah, the proprietor of the school, also a Cocoa Purchasing Clerk of the Produce Buying Company, said many parents in the area encourage child labour out of illiteracy and ignorance.

Addressing an educational forum organised to increase enrolment in school, the proprietor, called on parents to instil discipline in their children and also monitor and supervise their studies.

Mr Awuah said since education brings progress and development, he and his wife decided to establish the school to help cater for the kids whose mothers normally send them to farms and the markets to shape their lives
