The International Labor Organization notes in this video that progress has been made in reducing child labor among ages 5 to 14, where the number of child labourers fell by 10 per cent. However the number of children workers, ages 5 to 17, are still estimated to be 62 million worldwide. On June 12, ILO marked World Day Against Child Labor to call for the end of child labor by 2016.
The World Day Against Child Labor promotes awareness and action to tackle child labour. To support efforts to reduce child labor worldwide, please visit The Child Health Site's Take Action center.
The International Labour Organization (ILO) is an United Nations agency that brings together governments, employers and workers of its member states in common action to promote decent work throughout the world.
