The situation of rights of children of tea garden workers in Bangladesh is bad, giving the children relatively vulnerable and disadvantageous social position compared to their counterparts in the mainstream community. Children in the tea gardens are found to be deprived of their rights as human being due to multifarious reasons underlying the socio-economic conditions of the family, limited human right facilities in terms of available education, health, hygiene and nutrition, work, and social services provided for the promotion of their lives. Moreover, some structural factors associated to the management system of the tea companies are largely considered responsible for the deprivation of basic rights of children in the garden. Social work is a professional practice that particularly works for ensuring human rights and social justice in the society. Therefore, this paper comes up with some policy recommendations for protection of child rights from social work perspective.
