In a good day of work he can earn up to 100 Taka (approx. US$1). Hasan is forced to work to help support his family. Hasan is still going to school, he is in class six. Although the law prohibits child labour, the practice is consistent throughout the region. Enforcement of existing laws is inadequate. Child labour is technically illegal but extremely widespread. Driven by poverty, it is often parents who are forced to push their children into work at an early age.
