Read the passage below and answer questions 9 to 11.

Not all work done by our children can be considered as child labour. Some activities may help children to acquire important livelihood skills and contribute to their day to day life. However, much of the work children carry out in agriculture is not child friendly. Such work is likely to be hazardous or to interfere with children's education. For instance, a child working in fields where pesticides have been applied, staying up all night on a fishing boot, or carrying loads so heavy that they harm the development of the child's body. Some of the key factors that contribute to child labour in rural areas are low family incomes, few livelihood alternatives, poor access to education and limited labour law enforcement

To us these children are born.
And the task to care must be borne.
Their right with all might to protect.
Even if it cost us every single cent.

Children rights are human rights.
And always we choose to do right.
In our factories they shouldn't labour.
Or ask for food as Luugh it's a favour.

And health care should always gain.
Never to suffer in pain.
Or sleep in open plains.
