  • International labour Organisation estimates there are 246 million child labourers worldwide.
  • They think that by giving the children to others families they will be able to look after them. So many times those kids are very badly treated even sometimes sexually abused.
  • E.g. The crime is typically fuelled by weak law enforcement and /or corruption.
  • Also 8 million are living in slavery or debt bondage.Bondage is when their families ask for a loan the child has to work to pay it off.The reason that they hire a child is that they pay less money, they do difficult jobs andmake them work longer.
  • More than 90% live in developing countries.
  • In developing countries, corruption is the main reason why this happens, the laws are extremely weak.
  • Africa has the worst forms of child labour (hazardous work)Other areas such as Eastern Europe, Russia and Latin America also engage in child labour.
  • Adolescent girls between 13 & 17 years of age for sexual exploitationAlso children under 13 years of age for forced labour, begging and exceptionally for the sale of organs.
