According to the United Nations (UN) around 215 million children work around the world. They do not go to school, have little or no time to play, nor receive proper nutrition or care. More than half the children are exposed to the worst kinds of labor — such as “work in hazardous environments, slavery, or other forms of forced labour, illicit activities including drug trafficking and prostitution, as well as involvement in armed conflict.” In almost all cases, child labor is directly related to extreme poverty.
The ILO has worked aggressively on the issue of child labor and significant progress has been made over the last four years which is encouraging. The International Labour Organization and its member States continue on the path to the abolition of child labour by focusing first on the elimination of all the worst forms of child labor by 2016.
World Day 2015 calls for:
- Free, compulsory and quality education for all children at least to the minimum age.
- Ensure that national policies on child labour and education are consistent and effective.
- Ensure access to quality education and investment in the teaching profession.
