World Day Against Child Labour 2022: Theme
The theme for World Day Against Child Labour 2022 is “Universal Social Protection to End Child Labour.” The theme is dedicated to the cause of increasing investment in social protection systems and schemes to establish solid social protection for protecting children from child labour.
What is child labour?
Child labour refers to any form of work that exploits children under the age of 18. It can take many different forms, including working in dangerous and harmful environments, performing heavy labour, or being forced to work for little or no pay. Unfortunately, child labour is still a widespread problem around the world, and it affects both boys and girls in all parts of the world.
There are a number of reasons why child labour is a problem. For example, it can lead to children being deprived of an education, which can have serious consequences for their future prospects. It also puts them at risk of exploitation by employers or traffickers, and can lead to them becoming involved in crime later on in life.
World day against child labour is celebrated on June 12th every year. This day marks the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, which was signed by over 100 countries back in 1989. The convention defines child labour as work that is unnecessary, harmful or dangerous, and forbids countries from allowing children to work below the minimum age required by law. However, there is still much work to be done to guarantee that all children have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else.
Types of child labour

– Child soldiery
