World Day Against Child Labour

اليوم العالمي لمكافحة عمل الأطفالWhen : 12 June

2019 theme: Children shouldn’t work in fields, but on dreams!

Children shouldn’t work in fields, but on dreams. Yet today, 152 million children are still in child labour. Although child labour occurs in almost every sector, seven out of every ten is in agriculture.

In 2019, the International Labour Organization celebrates 100 years of advancing social justice and promoting decent work. The World Day Against Child Labour looks back on progress achieved over a 100 years of ILO support to countries on tackling child labour. Since its founding in 1919, the protection of children has been embedded in the ILO’s Constitution (Preamble). One of the first Conventions adopted by the ILO was on Minimum Age in Industry (No. 5, 1919).
The International Labour Organization (ILO) launched the World Day Against Child Labour in 2002 to focus attention on the global extent of child labour and the action and efforts needed to eliminate it. 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.

“When these three keys turn together, when governments, employers and workers are able to come together, doors open and social justice advances.

Guy Ryder, ILO Director-General

“Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice.”

Nelson Mandela, former President of South Africa, Nobel Peace Prize laureate in 1993.
