Child Labour

Child labour is still a huge problem in the world. According to the ILO, 218 million children are in employment, of them over 152 million are aged between 5 and 11. Millions of these children are not enrolled in school and receive no formal education.

Children can be found working in numerous sectors including, domestic labour, agriculture, seafood processing, garment and footwear factories, mining and quarrying, pyrotechnics, rag-picking and scavenging, rubber and sugar-cane, to name just a few. Hazardous conditions are commonplace, as are the paths working children face of becoming victims of trafficking and sexual abuse.
