3. There is no trust more sacred than the one the world holds with children.
There is no duty more important than ensuring that their rights are
respected, that their welfare is protected, that their lives are free from fear
and want and that they can grow up in peace.
4. Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired
signifies is, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not
fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not
spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius
of its scientists, the hopes of its children.

50. What is meant by child labour?
Child labour means work that is prohibited for children of certain age groups.
It is work performed by children who are under the minimum age legally
specified for that kind of work, or work which, because of its detrimental
nature or conditions, is considered unacceptable for children and is prohibited.
An estimated 1.2 million children — both boys and girls — are trafficked each
year into exploitative work in agriculture, mining, factories, armed conflict or
commercial sex work.
