Education is an essential tool to not only eradicate child labour but also ensure better childhood of these tiny working hands. In this effort grass root NGOs can play a pivotal role. Many NGOs like Bandhua Mukti Morcha Salam Balak Trust etc are not only rescuing the working children and providing shelter to them but are also looking after their educational needs. The book focuses on the problem of child labour with case study methodology and suggests the measures to deal with the problem. Policy makers researchers and students of economics sociology and education may find the book useful.
