노동하는 어린이, 학교로 돌아가다

2006.11.17
Sigit Wicaksono is eager to learn how to use a computer. It is a new experience for him. His hands are used to doing hard labor, not handling a mouse. Sigit is 14, older and taller than his sixth-grade classmates at Ngebung primary school in East Java. He lost three years of study when his father forced him to leave school and work in construction to help support the family.Sigit grows uncomfortable talking about that period in his life. SOUNDBITE (Bahasa Indonesia), SIGIT WICAKSONO, Former child laborer; "I dropped out of school because I had no money, and I joined my father to carry concrete paving blocks. It was to help my parents." Sigit's is a common story in East Java, where many parents expect their children to work to provide for their families. He joined the ranks of an estimated one and a half million child laborers in Indonesia between 10 and 14-years-old, most of them out of school. UNICEF has been working to get these children back into the classroom – promoting incentives to businesses, and raising awareness in the community at large. Ultimately, it was the local community that brought Sigit back to school. When the school principal and the village chief urged him to let Sigit return to his studies, Sigit's father agreed. SOUNDBITE (Bahasa Indonesia), AHMAD, Sigit's Father; "I asked Sigit whether he wanted to go back to school or not. He said he wanted to go back. So, I just let him go. I said, I will work by myself then." Sigit is back in class, but he continues to work for his father after class and on weekends. This time, he crafts flowerpots instead of hauling concrete. SOUNDBITE (Bahasa Indonesia), SIGIT WICAKSONO, former child laborer; "I am still studying, but I still help my father work, because I want to help my father, my family and myself. But, I still have time to study and to play." And a new chance to carve his own niche in life. *** Asset Name : UNICEF helps communities in Indonesia bring child laborers back into the classroom Asset Duration: 02 min 32 secs Shoot City: Probolinggo Shoot Country: Indonesia Shoot Date: April 28, 20
