In this photograph taken on July 6, 2012 a labourer mixing water and sand that will later be moulded into bricks by his family takes a break from his chores at a brick kiln in the outskirts of Lahore. According to the United Nations International Labor Organization (ILO) child and adult labourers working in brick kilns in South Asia spend over 70 hours a week performing repetitive motions and are exposed to sun, heat and blowing dust. The ILO points out that by using a system of advances for bond labourers and their families, kiln owners are able to ensure regular labour at a low cost. According to BUNYAD, a Pakistani NGO, about 95% of families working in brick kilns in or near Lahore have taken advance payments from the owner. Due to advance payments, owners used to exploit them in the form of low wage rate, bonded labour for all family members, excessive working hours and no opportunity to work somewhere else.
