Child labour worsens in India due to COVID pandemic
Al Jazeera, 15 Sep 2021
India's COVID-19 pandemic has forced schools to close and left many families struggling to survive.
As a result, the number of working children - more than 10 million in India, according to Census 2011 of India data - may be double that number now, say child rights campaigners.
However, a magazine written by schoolchildren in the northern city of Firozabad is trying to tackle the issue.
Al Jazeera's Elizabeth Puranam reports from Firozabad in Uttar Pradesh, India.
