World Day Against Child Labour Is Being Observed Today

World day against Child Labour is being observed today to focus attention on the global extent of Child Labour and the action and efforts needed to eliminate it.

The International Labour Organization launched the world day against Child Labour in 2002.

The theme for World Day Against Child Labour is ‘Action Taken’. Yet today, 152 million children are still in child labour.

Over 72 million children around the world remain unschooled while 10% of the world's children population is forced to work due to socio economic backwardness.

Millions of children, aged four to fourteen, keep the factories operating, often working in brutal and squalid conditions.

Child Labour is a crime for humanity and they have the right to live your childhood. Need of the hour is to take the issue seriously to eliminate this curse from our country. It is not only a case of securing our children but also safeguarding our future.
