Anti-Child Labour Day
Anti Child Labour Day is observed on 12 June every year across the world
Anti Child Labour Day is observed on 12 June every year across the world. It was introduced in 2002 by the International Labour Organisation.
Anti Child Labour Day or World Day against Child Labour Day provides the opportunity to provide environment for children to grow and live a dignified life and to fight against child labour throughout the world.
Poverty is one of the main reasons for child labour because of which children's are forced to left their school and opt for minial jobs to support their parents for their livelihood. Moreover, some are forced into child labour by organised crime rackets.
This Day not only focus on the suitable environment required for the children to grow and prosper but also provide an opportunity to gain support from governments, civil society, schools, youth, women's groups and media to participate in the campaign against child labour.
