12 June — World Day Against Child Labour -

This year, the theme for World Day is “In conflicts and disasters, protect children from child labour.”

In times of conflict, in times of disaster, when livelihoods are disrupted, basic services are lost and people can be forced from their homes with entire families becoming more vulnerable. But it is children who often pay the heaviest price. Many of the 168 million children in child labour live in areas affected by conflict and disaster.

The 2017 World Day will be marked with events in some 30 countries, ranging from policy discussions involving government ministries, employers’ and workers’ organizations, UN agencies and humanitarian actors, to community level activities involving children and their families. We urge you to continue to participate in complementing efforts at eradicating child labour in our communities and at conflicts and disaster areas.
