Children in Kabul due to economic challenges facing their families are working in brick factories.
The children asked the Islamic Emirate to address the economic problems of their families and provide an education for them.
“In other countries, children are studying but here we cannot, so we call on the government to provide an education for us,” said Roshan, a child laborer working in the factory.
“Our future is destroyed. we are all children working here in this brick factory,” said Feroz, a child laborer working in the factory.
Sujad, 11, is working in a brick factory in the Deh Sabz district of Kabul and said that because of economic challenges he has to work with his father.
“My father is sick, and we work here morning until night, we call on the government to help us,” said Sujad.
“We call on the government to allow girls to study and to become doctors,” said Zarena, sister of Sujad.
“My father is sick and cannot support our family, and we ask the Islamic Emirate to provide education for us so we can serve our country,” said Merwis, a brother of Sujad.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Economics said that efforts are underway to provide an education for children with the cooperation of foreign organizations.
“We are trying to provide education with the cooperation of foreign organizations so they can have an important role in the progress of their country,” said Abdul Latif Nazari, deputy of the Ministry of Economy.
