World Day against Child Labour

World Day against Child Labour

‘World Day against Child Labor’ has been observed on 12th June. The day was issued by the International Labor Organization (ILO). World Day against Child Labor was started in the year 2002.

The theme of ‘World Day against Child Labor’ for the year 2021 has been ‘Act now: End child labour’.

Background

According to the International Labor Organization, low-income countries have the highest percentage of child labor. Africa has the largest number of child laborers in the world. That is, one fifth of the world’s child labor resides here. According to the report, 9 out of 10 children involved in labor work are from Asia, Africa and the Pacific region.

Key Points

  • The main objective of celebrating ‘World Day against Child Labor’ is to provide protection to a child in the age group of 5 to 17 engaged in work who is deprived of the following basic rights like normal childhood, proper health care, adequate education, free time and basic freedom.
  • Along with this, the attention of the people has to be taken towards the problem of child labor. Child labor is often associated with prostitution and drug trafficking.

COVID-19 crisis

According to Child Helpline International during the COVID-19 Crisis, a third of the global population has been affected by the COVID-19 crisis, of whom about 1.5 billion are children.
