Fact of the Day

UNICEF reminds us that, worldwide, about 168 million children aged 5 to 17 are engaged in child labour, accounting for almost 11 per cent of all children. 

Of this total of 168 million children victims of modern slavery, about 100 million boys and 68 million girls.

Child labour is defined as work for which the child is too young – i.e., work done below the required minimum age.
