Global March Against Child Labour

Global March Against Child Labour

Parents in India sell their children for less than £35 under the expectation that they will have a better life and get more money once they part from their child. Instead the reality is that these children are trafficked and moved into big cities where they are sold to contractors and put into forced labour.

Once contractors have trafficked these children they have to work in inhuman conditions earning little or almost no money with no prospect of seeing their family in the near future.

According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, Delhi is a hub and transit point for child trafficking as sweatshops encompasses the capital.

In this raid Sky News went on in India activists had information that over one hundred children had been employed in a three-storey building but only thirty-one children were found. The owner had been tipped off and therefore the children were made to disappear.

Global March Against Child Labour is a worldwide network of trade unions teachers’ and civil society organisations that work together to eliminate and prevent all forms of child labour and ensuring all children have access to free good quality public education.
