Child labour is better defined as work that robs children of their childhood, dreams, and potential. It additionally ends up in harmful physical and mental growth. Involvement of kids below eighteen in some economic activities, whether or not it's paid or unpaid, such involvement could be mental or physical. Under extreme economic distress, children are forced to take up jobs which are mostly exploitative as they are usually underpaid and engaged in hazardous conditions; this causes child labour. The main aim of the study is to find the impact of education on the reduction of child labour. The researcher has followed an Empirical research method using a convenient sampling method. The sample size of the study on this research is 204. The research shows that lack of education is the major cause of child labour and the major impact of child labour is the depression in national wages; this also shows that the government is partially helping to reduce child labour in the current society. Early education is the most effective approach to keep children out of the labour market and provide them with the skills they will need to find decent work in the future. Education and training are critical drivers of social, economic, and democratic progress.
