English abstract
Child labour have become an increasing phenomena in Ghana, whereby especially young girls are employed to domestic work or vendor in the market instead of going to school. In Dzemeni Volta Ghana, the case is much worsens as majority of the children do not attend school but rather vendor in the market. Not that alone some of these children are traffic from the neighbour towns to Dzemeni to come and work. Dzemeni is a small town located in south of Ghana precisely the Volta region, it has a long history of serving as the market centre for the adjoining neighbouring towns and it a very busy on it market days which is every Thursday of the week. The problem of child labour here has a long history which is rooted in the ideological thinking of training for people. To them training is not necessary education in the classroom but through the means available to them to make a child become useful in the future. Moreover, their culture permits them to send their children to live with extended family members to learn trade or something. However, the various daily livelihoods of children plus the general problem which help expand child labour within the community forms the main body of this paper. This paper therefore presents and summarizes the various conditions in which these children find themselves inn and also how the government policy at present in one way or the other help contribute to the continuation of child labour unknowingly plus the view of the children who are victims.
