About 100 students of Government Boys Primary School are forced to to get education while sitting on the ground. Social, political and religious circles have expressed grave concern and urged the Punjab chief minister to take serious notice of situation. Illiteracy termed mother of all problems: Education at this critical juncture has become more imperative not only for bringing radical changes in mindset but also overcoming the socio-economic problems. We have failed to identify our real enemies over the past 63 years and if impartially analyzed the whole situation we found illiteracy is our common foe resultantly the nation is suffering from socio-economic problems. Pages of human history stand testimony to lack of educational facilities, greed on part of parents, trend of cheap labour increased the lust for the benefit in traders and industrialists and all these combined together promoted child labour and this taking the shape of a vicious circles generated poverty as a result of this at present a large number children are forced for the child labour. Societies that paid full attention to childrens training and upbringing on appropriate setlines made much astounding progress that baffled other societies. The history of the world is full of examples of these great nations. These nations brightened their future and won distinctions in the glob and their names were written in bold letters. On the other hand those that neglected the children fell instead of rising and dwindled into nothingness. The optimistic role of developed societies reflects that education is a vital instrument for rising of nation as well as all round development of the country. Under the present scenario, education has become very important for bringing revolutionary changes in every sphere of life. Human history bears witness to the fact that it was lack of educational facilities, greed on part of the parents and trend of cheap labour, which increased the lust for benefit of the traders and industrialists and all these factors promoted the menace of child labour. Unlikely to Asian countries and this strength also includes those children who are forced to do bonded labour because their parents cannot pay their debts as well as who are victims of sexual exploitation. Now the situation has totally changed globally and nations are struggling for complete elimination domestic child labour and from industrial sector and trying protecting the childs rights under United Nations charter. In order to address the issues pertaining to all sort of child labour Sialkot Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI) is playing its dominating role with the help of Child and Social Development Organization (CSDO) an independent NGO. CSDO was the outcome of mutual understanding among key players of Atlanta Agreement SCCI, UNICEF and ILO. CSDO was established in July 2002 as an independent body to address the issues pertaining to child labour, corporate social responsibilities and social development in Sialkot. It is worth mentioning that UNICEF, ILO, WFSGI, FIFA, SCCI and all Soccer ball manufactures participating in Child Labour Elimination Programme (CLEP) have been fully supporting CSDO since its inception 2002. In a short span of time CSDO is achieving its cherishing goals by enrolling out-of-school children towards education. In this regard CSDO establish fourteen non-formal education centres (Talim-ul-Amal Centres) As many as 1690 children enrolled in these centres of which 1037 are girls while 771 students were also enrolled in formal schools out of which 421 are girls. Total 2461 working and out of school children of the past are now getting quality education in centres without pander to unwanted activities. CSDO had set up a unique replica by bringing the children of junk collectors in to schools and there was no such example in the past. The CSDO teams were playing their tremendous role in mobilizing the members of the communities, parents and children about the importance of the education. Though it was a tough task in this materialistic era because parents usually prefer that their kids do something to earn as compared to education and this tendency generate many sensitive issues like domestic labour, child labour, forced labour and child abuse as well as social evils. The hallmark of the programme was to eradicate illiteracy and child labour of all sorts from the society. Believe it or not but CSDO had set up a unique precedent by mobilizing and through social dialogues with the Junk Collectors families about the utility of education. Ultimately, the junk collectors families decided to send their children in education centre established by CSDO really its miracle because this community had its own rules and regulations as well as life style. During a visit to centre it was observed that these children totally ignored in the past are showing their excellent performance in the centre and by virtue of a spade work CSDO has attained the impossible. This precedent is rare in the history of Sialkot even in the country because these children were totally ignored when Universal Education Programme was launched in this export-oriented city and nucleus of cottage industry of the country. The service of CSDO in this connection would be written with golden words in the history and would be remembered all times to come as well as pave the way for others to replicate same model in other parts of the country. CSDO is an effective and credible platform to address the social issues of the industry. The International Brands/buyers, FIFA, WFSGI, UN agencies, Government, SCCI, Business Community, Trade Bodies, etc. may collaborate with CSDO for the protection of children and address the CSR issues of the industry. Socio-political circles were of the opinion that UNICEF should formulate long term education programme to ensure continuity of education of enrolled children and at this stage winding up the education programme would be detrimental for the future of children and they will forced work by their parents resultantly the efforts of CSDO become fruitless.
