Ali and Mercy1973Ali and Mercy By Kingsley Sambo
Sambo’s work shows how happy children are and can be when they receive parental love and are  availed freedom from of all the discord of life. The painting raises themes such as innocence, playtime and through the liveliness and brightness of hue, the nature of children is fully harnessed through warmth and joy.
This week we are celebrating world day against child labour. The World Day against Child Labour, which is held on June 12, intended to foster the worldwide movement against child labour in any of its forms.
“Child labour” is work that deprives children of their childhood, their potential and their dignity, and that is harmful to physical and mental development. It refers to work that: is mentally, physically, socially or morally dangerous and harmful to children; and interferes with their schooling by: depriving them of the opportunity to attend school; obliging them to leave school prematurely.
Stop Child Labour and let children have the best of their early lives in order to become constructive citizens in society.
