The Little Known Musician by airamg The Little Known Musician by airamg
This cute little boy -I still don't know his name- is a child I 've met many times in the centre of Athens.
Here he is before one year
He is cute, amiable and I really enjoy his smile but I don't like too see him playing music and begging for money.

So..yesterday we spent some time together and enjoyed a hot chocolate.
He said that he likes music ,people and the communication with them but hates it when people drive him out.:worry:

Child labor is a fact , a sad but increasing fact.

Day by day children are forced to work or beg.

Today, throughout the world, around 215 million children work, many full-time.
They do not go to school and have little or no time to play. Many do not receive proper nutrition or care.
They are denied the chance to be children.
More than half of them are exposed to the worst forms of child labour such as work in hazardous environments, slavery, or other forms of forced labour, illicit activities including drug trafficking and prostitution, as well as involvement in armed conflict.
Poverty is widely considered the top reason why children work at inappropriate jobs for their ages.
But there are other reasons as well such as
:bulletblack:family expectations and traditions
:bulletblack:abuse of the child
:bulletblack:lack of good schools and day care
:bulletblack:lack of other services, such as health care
:bulletblack:public opinion that downplays the risk of early work for children
:bulletblack:uncaring attitudes of employers
:bulletblack:limited choices for women

:star-empty: So all YOU have to do is Learn about the issue. :star-empty:
:star-empty: Support organizations that are raising awareness, and providing direct help to individual children.:star-empty:

:love: Make Children Happy :love:

Το γνωρίζω το αγοράκι και το έχω φωτογραφίσει.. δεν είχα, όμως, την ευκαιρία να του μιλήσω. Μπράβο σου, για την πρωτοβουλία.. Δεν είναι κακό που προσπαθεί να διασκεδάζει με τη μουσική, αλλά, κρίμα είναι να χάνει σημαντικά εφόδια ζωής, όπως η εκπαίδευση (εάν χάνει, γιατί δεν γνωρίζω τι συμβαίνει στη ζωούλα του)

Eίναι λίγο ζόρικος είναι η αλήθεια κι εγώ για να τον κάνω να μου μιλήσει έτρεξα λίγο :p Aκριβώς , είναι τόσο όμορφο να βλέπεις ένα τοσοδούλικο παιδάκι να προσπαθεί να παίξει και να το διασκεδάζει και ο ίδιος τόσο! Εύχομαι όμως σύντομα να μπορεί να το κάνει αυτό χωρίς να στερείται απολύτως τίποτα, έτσι όπως αρμόζει σε κάθε ψυχούλα.. :love: (και ναι δεν πάει σχολείο)
