In India, children’s vulnerabilities and exposure to violations of their rights remain spread and multiple in nature. These violations are various, ranging from child labour, child trafficking, to commercial sexual exploitation and many other forms of violence and abuse.

Although poverty is often cited as the cause underlying child labour, other factors such as discrimination, social exclusion, as well as the lack of quality education or existing parent's attitudes and perceptions about child labour and the role and value of education need also to be considered.
