Child labour rampant in Afghanistan

Many forced to work as indentured labourers to pay off family debts, sometimes for their whole lives.

Many children in Afghanistan are among the most exploited members of society, being forced to work almost as soon as they can walk.

A brick factory in Nangarhar where young boys work to pay off their family’s debts is just one of many examples of child labour in the country.
