Mohamed's project: Solving child labour in the community

Mohamed wants to help solve the problem of child labour in his community. His community is a subsistence farming community. The farmers are in the habit of hiring the children to work on their farms during school hours.  

Sand mining is also another economic activity in his community. Sand miners use the children as cheap labour during the dry seasons to transport their sand from the river to the land to sell it during the rainy season, when the river would have taken over the beaches to get more money.  

Mohamed wants to organize an awareness campaign and involve stakeholders, farmers, children, young people and local officials. He also wants to do radio programs to reach more people.
