Children working in conditions that are hazardous to their mental and physical health

Sporting clothes and shoes are made in countries such as Indonesia, China, and Vietnam

10 000 children in Punjab, India stitch soccer balls
More than 15 000 children stitch soccer balls in Pakistan
“Some four million Indian children work as domestic helpers, in roadside restaurants and in factories making clothes and other items, according to government figures released last year. Experts say the actual figures are much higher.” (Andrabi)
Half of the stitchers are living below the poverty line
Four out of ten households involved in soccer ball stitching are headed by illiterate adults
218 million children are involved
