World Day against Child Labour 2017
“In conflicts and disasters, protect children from child labour”
12 June – World Day Against Child Labour
The World Day Against Child Labour this year focused on the impact of conflicts and disasters on child labour.
In areas affected by conflict and disaster, homes and schools are often destroyed. Many families lose their means to earn a living. Family and social protection systems break down and increase the risk of child labour. Child refugees and migrants, particularly those on the move who are separated from their families, are especially vulnerable and can easily fall prey to trafficking and child labour.
