END CHILD LABOUR
160 million children around the world today are engaged in child labour and denied their right to freedom. The scale of this global injustice is staggering and youth, student and survivor activists are refusing to accept that any child is working to survive instead of learning in school.
As the world becomes richer and richer, one in ten children are experiencing such extreme marginalisation and exclusion that they are forced to work long hours at the expense of their education, their childhood and their future. Denied basic services or protection, they are growing crops, mining minerals and even making toys for other children to enjoy.
The 100 Million campaign is fighting to eliminate child labour by tackling the root causes of this injustice: demanding an end to discrimination, realising every child's right to social protection and amplifying the leadership of survivor-advocates with lived experience of child labour.
