World Day Against Child Labour 2022
June 12 is marked as the World Day Against Child Labour as more than 150 million children and adolescents working in areas that are harmful to their physical, mental, social or educational health.
The theme for this year is “Universal Social Protection to End Child Labour”. It calls for investments into social safety nets and programs to protect children from being forced into child labour.
The aim of this day is to create more awareness on the harms that child labour has on individuals, especially drug trafficking, sex trade and use of children in armed conflict among others.
We call on various stakeholders; National and Local Governments, traditional and religious leaders, members of civil and international societies and organisations to work towards the eradication of Child Labor.
