WORLD DAY AGAINST CHILD LABOUR

The day intends to raise awareness about the global extent of child labour and the action and efforts needed to eliminate it. The recent global estimates put forward that 120 million children between the ages of 5 and 14 are involved in child labour.
The   persistence of child labour is due to 

  •       Poverty and lack of decent work for adults
  •         Lack of social protection
  •      Failure to ensure that all children are attending school through to the legal minimum age for admission to employment
