My health was not good and I was jobless and my wife and my children were working for my medicine and food. I was thinking that I can not work because I am weak and I am also T.B patient. More time I can not take my medicine and my children were not going to school because we were very financial weak. With my health my financial condition was also very weak. My big son he is 12 year old and he was working in vegetable market and earning money for us. In our village 20/2.L Renala khurd Caritas Faisalabad is working against poverty and child labor. For those children who are going for working in different factories, workshops, and vegetable market they opened a working children education center. My big was working in vegetable market and second time he goes in working children education center for getting education.

Executive Secretary of caritas Pakistan Faisalabad Ms.Yasmine Joseph said to teachers that we hope that in this refresher course you will learn more things and you are very important for caritas Faisalabad because now you are very experience teachers. She said that after this refresher course your work with working children will be better. So with working children your attitude should be friendly. In the last of refresher course program manager and program coordinator thanked to all teachers and resource persons.

Lesson learnt We found in the monitoring visits some children who are infected with different disease as T.B skin disease and polio. With it working children program observed that most of children are unaware about their basic life skill education. Because these children are working in hazardous atmosphere and are prone to get above mentioned diseases. More children in cities are working in cotton factories and they are becoming T.B patients and more are infected with chest diseases. In monitoring visit we saw in rural areas that more children are working with agriculture in fields. For us this is very terrible experience that the children are doing pesticide spray on the crop and as the result of this exercise they have to face a lot of respiratory disease. Now we can understand that health care is extremely important for these children because many children work for long hours, which is hazardous to their physical and mental health. Medical check-up and medical treatment facilities is very must for them.
