The UN Declaration on the Rights of the Child
  • Special measures of protection and assistance on behalf of all children without any discrimination
  • To ensure that their employment in work harmful to their morals or health or dangerous to life or likely to hamper their normal development is punishable by law.
  • And to set age limits below which the paid employment of child labour is prohibited and punishable by law.
  • Protect children from economic and social exploitation.

Global View on Child Labor

They are 250 million children around the world in child labor. India is considered to be the highest country faced with the issue of child labor. In India, they are about 20 to 80 million children in child labor.


What Children Do

  • Work in factories
  • Domestic servitude.
  • Weave carpets
  • Brick laying
  • Work with hazardous chemicals and contaminated instruments.
  • Prostitution

Current Situations

  • Parents are depending on their children’s income.
  • Poverty is sky-rocketing


  • What is the cause of poverty?
  • What causes parents to depend on their children’s income?

Indian Government

    • Fails to provide Education.
  • 4% of it government’s budget is spend on education and health combine and 48% on their military. Because of the lack of education, poverty is now skyrocketing.
  • Fails to provide Jobs.

The government has also fail to provide jobs to it people, to cut parents dependence on their children’s income.


What Has Been Done

  • Organizations such as CWIN, BLLF, CPCR
  • Activists such as Craig Kielburger, Igbal Masih

They have been able to bring to our attention this situations in India, and have also established a mark called Rugmark for every export carpet. This mark shows that the carpet is free from child labor.


What Needs to be Done

  • Be able to recognize the Rugmark in order to avoid purchasing imported products made by children. With this strategy production involving children would fall.
  • We must also make sure our government leaders respect their pledge to protect children, and if they have to interact with other countries through globalization, and they must make sure those countries respect the rights of children.
  • We need to be able to donate to organizations that are dedicated to protecting these innocent children
