Child laborers are not simply working an after-school job. They are children that have had their safety, education and childhoods taken from them. Many work full-time for little to no pay. Abuse is rampant.
Learn the true cost of child labor in this infographic and how you can help.
Many children in our sponsorship program live in communities that experience higher incidents of child rights violations. These violations include not only child labor but child prostitution, child trafficking, physical, emotional and sexual abuse, neglect, early marriages and harmful cultural practices.
Your sponsorship of a vulnerable child provides protection, education, action planning and an immediate response to abuse when needed.
Stop child labor before it starts.
