Every year, on June 12, The World Day against Child Labour is observed. This day is launched to observe in 2002 by United Nations and International Labour Organization (ILO). The main aim to observe this day is raise awareness and activism against child labour.
As per the International Labour Organization (ILO) millions of boys and girls from all over the world are involved in labour work instead of education, health and basic freedoms. They are forced to do labour work and people violating their rights. Among these children, more than half of the children were found doing work in the worst ever situation and condition like slavery, forced labour, hazardous environments, drug trafficking, illicit activities, prostitution, etc. They are also involved in armed conflict.
Observance of this Day brings together local authorities, governments, civil society and workers and employees organizations globally to solve the child labour problem. They also define the proper guidelines to help child labours.
