Transcript of Somalia
3rd worst Child labor country
Population & Map
The use of children in industry or business, especially when illegal or considered inhumane.
Definition of Child Labor
For many years, Somalia has been ravaged by a particularly violent civil war. Children are a large part of the victims. In Mogadishu, the capital, there are still armed conflicts and terrorist attacks every day. Hospitals in the capital are, in large part, filled with children who have been hit by bullets or who have been handicapped as a result of a mine explosion.
Close to 40 percent of all children under 15 under are put to work in Somalia, where they engage
in the worst forms of child labor, according to the UNHCR. As well as being used in armed conflict, as bodyguards or sex slaves within militias, children frequently work with dangerous equipment in the agriculture sector and in quarries.
Current male population (49.6%)
Current female population (50.4%
It is quite dangerous to grow up in Somalia. There are many serious obstacles for children to overcome (violence, poverty, malnutrition, etc.) Rights for children in Somalia still need to be secured: Somalia is one only two countries in the world that has not ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Child Labor in Somalia
During the reporting period, the Transitional Federal
Government established a Focal Point for Human
Rights and Child Protection to address child soldiering
issues and other forms of child labor. However, there
is currently no clear minimum age for employment,
no compulsory education, and no instruments for
monitoring or combating child labor. Children engage
in the worst forms of child labor in agriculture and
continue to be recruited by armed groups for use in
conflict, including the Transitional Federal Government’s

The third worst country that has child labor
By Andres Alcaraz and Savannah Castaneda
About 40% of children suffer from malnutrition in Somalia; 33% only eat once a day. Farming is the most common occupation in the country but droughts and floods, as well as war, don’t allow for sufficient crop production.

There are reports that the Ahlu Sunnah Wal Jama'a (ASWJ) militia, which to date has refused to become part of the SNA, also used child soldiers. Somalia continued to lack many elements necessary to effectively address the worst forms of child labor, including an established justice sector, policies, and programs.
