Despite efforts in many countries to outlaw the practice of forced child labour, the nature of the particular employment often makes it difficult to regulate and monitor.
A large majority of working children are unpaid family workers and whatever payment some children receive falls well below normal rates, with girls regularly receiving much less than boys.
This resource creates opportunities for pupils to learn about the injustices happening around the world to children just like them.
Pupils will become aware of the types of labour some children are forced to undertake. They will learn about the injustices of forced child labour and be encouraged to become involved in raising awareness around this issue. This section also includes a video on child labour and a resource bank with diagrams, charts and articles with image galleries.
