World Day Against Child Labour

Today is the World Day Against Child Labour! Hundreds of millions of children have to work in hazardous environments, slavery, or other forms of forced labour, illicit activities such as drug trafficking and prostitution, or are exposed to armed conflicts. The day was launched by the International Labour Organization (ILO) in 2002 and it is intended to serve as a catalyst for the growing worldwide movement against child labour, reflected in the huge number of ratifications of ILO Convention No. 182 on the worst forms of child labour.
