World Day Against Child Labour 12 June
The world's countries have recognized the seriousness of the situation.
Children in India sometimes work in very dangerous environments, such as fireworks or mines, but also find many minor employees in the textile industry. Other particularly affected areas are Nepal and Bangladesh, Indonesia. In these countries children has to do hard houseworks in 100 hours per week, as it is not uncommon to be victims of prostitution.
Each year on 12 June, the World Day brings together governments, employers and workers organizations, civil society, as well as millions of people from around the world to highlight the plight of child labourers and what can be done to help them
