What Can We Do To Help?

Who are the victims of child labour?
Child labour is cause because of poverty, when poor children and their family rely upon child labour for survival and family economy. Poverty appears as the most convincing reason why children work.

Countries may be equally poor and yet have relatively high or relatively low levels of child labour.
