Child trafficking is one of the serious issues that the whole world is fighting. How, then, can we as responsible global citizens not step forward and lag behind? For a long time we have been using the power of language or words to influence the world and demanding stricter laws from the government. In addition, you can create a thought provoking speech on child trafficking that is effective to move your audience and easy to understand.
Long and Short Speech on Child Trafficking in English
Speech – 1
I am Pranav Kaushik, your host for today, I would like to speak here on one of the most pressing issues that permeate our country and indeed the whole world, which is “child trafficking”. First of all, tell me how many of you know about child trafficking? Child trafficking, also known as child exploitation and child labour, which means child labor, labor and child trafficking for exploitation, recruitment, maintenance, transfer, etc.
We protect our children from every evil eye, but imagine what would happen to children who would be orphans or destitute, of tender age who would not even know how to walk properly. I am sure we all must have seen such children asking for money and food in torn clothes on the side of the road. Can’t we think of the pitiable condition of such young children who, instead of going to school and enjoying their childhood, are made beggars and forced to beg on the side of the road? How many of us are there who actually come forward and adopt children or take proactive steps to help them in their education? This rarely happens, right!
That’s why I consider it appropriate to raise this issue here today and tell as many people as possible sensitive things about this labor because often we see young children begging on the street and being victims of trafficking. Let us now understand how many types of child trafficking actually exist!
4-Children in the Drug Trade
forced labor – This is one of the targets behind child trafficking. Child labor specifically refers to children who are usually under the age of 14 to work. Child labor manifests itself in various forms like farms, domestic work, productive industries, etc. In addition, many children are forced to do cheap wages and controlled labor and work in farms, homes, restaurants, factories.
child almsForced labor, begging by children is a situation in which boys and girls under the age of 18 are forced to become physically and psychologically labourers. It is defined as the act of asking for money in the form of charity on the street.
sexual abuseAccording to the International Labor Organisation, sexual exploitation of children includes the following activities and practices:
- “Smuggling of Boys, Girls and Adolescents for the Sex Trade”
- “Use of children in sex shows (public or private)”
- In the form of money for “working (usually in the form of child prostitution) for boys and girls in places or streets used for sexual activity such as brothels, massage parlors, discotheques, hotels, bars, restaurants, etc.” The giving of cash or goods.
- “Involving children in the production, promotion and distribution of pornography”.
- “Child sex tourism”.
children in the drug trade Children are also involved in the illegal drug trade around the world. In particular, children are used as courier or payment in narcotics and drugs and they are forced to do this work by getting trapped in this business.
We probably cannot even imagine how and in what ways children are being exploited by anti-social elements in our society, however this can certainly be prevented by strict government controls, regulations and activities that enable people to become responsible global citizens. And it can also help in removing this evil from the society so that they can save the lives of young and innocent children from being destroyed.

Ladies and Gentlemen, wish you all a very Happy this Day! Today we have gathered here to discuss a very serious issue of our times for which our government is unfortunately doing nothing, which is “Child Trafficking”.
Even after completing 70 years of official independence, India has been practically unable to achieve it. Yes, we have certainly made progress in various fronts, but still we are struggling to transform ourselves from developing development. We are fighting every day with different tools of destruction like terrorism, corruption, unemployment and poverty etc. But child trafficking is such a concern, which is not only hollowing the country, but it is also putting a question mark on humanity.
It is an irony, a shameful irony that, on the one hand we call children God’s angels and on the other we endanger their future and that’s how we treat angels! If we look at the statistics, we find that there has been a huge increase in crimes against children in the last decades, which shows that our greed has not spared even children.
Today, children are being trafficked from all parts of our country and sent not across the country but across international borders. They are being forced to do all kinds of things like begging, in prostitution, working as domestic servants, as sources of organs, in the form of dirty illegal organ trade and in the brutal form of terrorism. . We are leaving behind our own record of more brutal killings of humanity, which only points to one thing.
Like any other problem in the world, child trafficking has its root causes, which is a serious issue that we are yet to find a solution to. Unemployment, poverty and lack of education top our list. They say no, hunger can make a person do anything, which is certainly the reason why in many cases for these trafficking groups, the parents themselves sell their children for money.
Today, we talk about mid-day meals, we talk about the quality of education, we make plans and claim big things but forget about the kids who don’t care about their children. are struggling with life and are beyond ‘luxuries’ like education and quality of food. If children are the future of our country and this is their condition, then our future is definitely in the dark. If we can allow our children to dream, the security and freedom to move around without fear, the promise of a full meal, then I think we can say “we are free.” That’s what I wanted to say.

good evening all! Today I am here to address a very relevant issue called child trafficking. Please allow me to share my thoughts.
We talk about educational reforms, we talk about child labour, we talk about children’s rights and the future. But the only action is what we should do and we don’t. Often we see many children begging or selling goods on signals, we see them working in shops and working in our house, but still we prefer to close our eyes and keep quiet. The problem today is that we just talk and feel that our work is done. This is the reason why even after trying so hard, we have not even come close to ending the growing form of child trafficking.
Every year millions of children in our country are pushed into the fields of prostitution, organ trade, slavery and terrorism. These children are put in dangerous and unsafe conditions, they are not even given enough food and kept in a non-living environment. This is the India we are giving to the children of our country after 70 years of independence. There’s a group of kids who can’t move around or play fearlessly because no one knows when or what will happen to them, and there’s another group who are sold by their parents so they can survive. and satisfy your hunger.
Some blame poverty for this, some unemployment, some others illiteracy and some outrageous morals, but I think there is no reason for this inhuman cruelty, they are all intertwined and one – Attracts to others. In fact, nothing can justify as abhorrent and immoral as child trafficking.
Now, is the time when we have to open our eyes and stop waiting for the government and others to do something. Instead of talking about it for a while and then forgetting, we need to wake up our consciousness. You may not be able to change the whole world alone, but you can initiate change and inspire others to contribute.
You should say “no” and protest whenever a child comes to serve you in the restaurant or when a child is sent to work in your house. Whenever we see a child picking up garbage from the side of the road, we should ask ourselves, is this right? Instead of doing charities that you don’t even know whether those charities will be able to serve the children’s purpose or not, you should contribute to them such as a child’s education, food and their transformation for good, etc., by doing this you are giving this legacy of awareness Go ahead and teach this to your children too so that this series continues.
Thinking about issues, discussing them and gathering opinions are definitely important aspects because that is how we spread awareness and try to understand the issues better. But, instead of talking, we need to go ahead and take necessary steps to treat it.

Respected Principal, Vice President, Teacher and my dear fellow students – Happy day to all of you!
I, Amrita Duceja from class XI (B), feel extremely happy to share the stage with my class teacher and thank her for giving me the opportunity to speak a few words today on Children’s Day. Friends, today I am not going to talk about how important this day is for us and how it is celebrated in our country, but today I want to draw your attention towards a serious reality, we all We are a little hesitant to face the unknown and we like to live in our own fairy tale world. Today, the entire nation has come out in this rally called “Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao”. In our past too many such campaigns called “Education is the right of every child” were taken out, but the opposite happened disappointingly.
Yes friends, India is considered a major transit destination or main source for child trafficking where young children are forced into labor and sexual harassment. This problem of child trafficking mainly arises from the marginalized sections of our society, women from tribal communities, labourers, lower dalit castes, religious minorities as well as excluded groups. Since they are the most vulnerable, they easily fall prey to such hostile elements of the society that they have to undergo child abuse and sexual abuse.
Doesn’t all this reveal the hypocrisy and double standards of our society? While on one hand the government talks about educating the youth, on the other hand it is unable to protect the future of the poor and vulnerable children. Are we as a society and a nation not responsible for the condition of the poor children who are forced to live a life of punishment? If we cannot bless them with a good life, then we also have no right to take away their innocent childhood joy from them. Do we hesitate a bit when we see a small child working as a servant in our home or workplace for low wages? How many of us are really concerned about sending them to school or NGO for their better future?
Unfortunately, our Indian children are exposed to various vulnerabilities as hundreds and thousands of children are forced to work in harsh conditions such as labor labor or sex trade in construction sites, brick kilns and agricultural farmhouses. Even young girls of about 8-9 years are not able to escape from them. Worse yet, there are children who are sold by their parents or sent to work in factories containing the most dangerous toxic substances.
So if we sincerely want to honor and celebrate this day, then we have to unite and end these evils and fight against these evils together to create a safe haven for our children, so that they are properly looked after. And no one can snatch their innocence and childhood.
Thanks a lot!
