Educated youngsters from the weaker economic background especially those living below poverty line (BPL) in India struggle to get right employment opportunities due to lack of necessary skills including computer skills, communication and presentation skills, etc. These less privileged children attend school with extreme difficulty with no or limited parental support most of the times in an unconducive school environment. Facing unemployment after receiving education with multifarious problems pushes these children into menial jobs and utter hopelessness. Viewing the plight of these children demotivates other children from this economically weak section of the society to study and thus thrust them into child labour.
