Children are considered to be the cutest version of god. They are the most beautiful creation of the almighty.
But when these innocent souls are denied their rights and forced to work then results are never good.
Following facts gives a brief insight into the lived of the kids ruined by evils of child labour
-There are 168 million children
worldwide trapped in child labor,
accounting for almost 11
percent of the overall child
-Nearly 60 percent of child labor
takes place in agriculture.
-There are 75 million young
persons aged 15 to 24 years of
age who are unemployed and
many more who must settle for
jobs that fail to offer a fair
income, security in the
workplace, social protection or
other basic decent work
-Former child laborers are much
more likely to have only primary
education or less.
-Young persons who worked as
children (up to the age of 15)
are more likely to be in low-
-Children forced by their
household circumstances or
other factors to leave school
prior to their fifteenth
birthday are less likely to ever
find jobs and those who do find
jobs take much longer to do so.
-Children in hazardous work that
directly harms their health,
safety or moral development
make up more than half of all
child laborers, numbering 85
million in absolute terms.
-A total of 47.5 million
adolescents aged 15 to 17 years
are in hazardous work,
accounting for 40 percent of all
employed adolescents aged 15
to 17 years and over one-
quarter (28 percent) of all child
-In developing countries, large
shares of youth leave school at
or below the general minimum
working age of 15 years.
-Girls who leave school early do
so disproportionately to
undertake responsibility for
chores within their own homes,
while boys are more likely to
leave school prematurely in
order to join the labor force.
The facts about child labor show
that it is a far-reaching
problem, especially for children
living in poverty. Because
children don’t have a voice or a
platform, they are extra
vulnerable to those who are
looking to abuse them.
