Child Labour in India

 In India, they have the largest number of child labourers in the world, Recruiters go to the poverty-stricken areas to traffic children often from lower caste such as the untouchables. They target areas that are often struck by natural disasters. About 60 million children are thought to still be working as child labourers. 70% of them work in the agriculture sector and the rest work in the construction sector. 

In 1989, the United Nations adopted the convention on the rights of the children. The convention is split into 4 parts, The right to protection, The right to development and the right to participation.  

Child labour has been around for generations and can be hard to eliminate, around the world people are working together to put an end to child labour. The ways people do that is by improving education for adults and children, community development, improving incomes and writing letters to the companies and governments about child labour. 

Child labour is ruining our children's lives, and the children are missing out on a lot of opportunities to learn properly, develop properly and they're losing their self-worth. But if enough of our people speak up about child labour we could put a stop to it. 

I think child labour is unfair for the kids because they're missing the opportunities that they may never ever get again. So I think more people need to speak up on child labour to end it.

Democracy is one when the people choose who will represent them in government, there are 120
Members of parliament who sit in the house of representatives which is located in Wellington, It is also an
MMP system where people get 2 votes, 1 vote is for which political party they want to win and the other
vote is for who you want to represent your area. New Zealand is a democratic system of government because every 3 years people who are New Zealand citizens, 18 years and over get to vote in an election.

Today I am posting a Migration Model which shows the push and pull reasons why a guy named Donovan Janse migrated from his country of origin South Africa to New Zealand.  Push reasons are the negative reasons why people leave there country of origin. Some of the negative reasons why he left South Africa was because they had to live by curfews and there was a lot crime happening in South Africa. The other negative reasons was because income levels were low and employments were high, he was also worried about the safety of his family.  Some of the pull reasons was better education for his kids, better income and a safer environment, when he came to New Zealand he became a teacher and was getting paid more than he did in South Africa. While he was New Zealand there was obstacles, he was missing his family back home and he also lost his dad while he was in New Zealand.

Meeting with client

For the past weeks we have been planing on what to paint on a blank wall around the school. This morning our client came in and checked on our artwork, when he came in he saw the work and he sounded like he really enjoyed some of them.Most of the ones that he liked were simple, he told us to use the KISS principal which stands for K- Keep,   I-it,   S-simple,    S-stupid. He is going to send more photos of things in his workshop to be included in our artwork. The font that he wants us to use is Ice Cube from Cool text and he wants the images to be simple and the images will include some of the tools that we use in the workshop.

An island called Kiribati which suffers from climate change. On 3rd of march 2014 giant waves full of seawater
crashed against the island of kiribati.The students of kiribati are learning how to deal with climate change,
some are planting new vegetables and some are studying the effects of climate change. Climate change is
one of the reasons why people would migrate well not really migrate but they might want to move
