KIDS FROM 5-17 WORK IN CHILD LABOUR!
What is Child Labour?
Well you know those pair of nike's you own well those were probably made by a child.
Which means that you make the company think that it's okay to use kids
Why should I care !
Child labour is an atrocious thing that happens all over the world. It’s not fair for the kids to work almost all day for less than $5 a day just to support their families and sometimes the kids can be sold to their boss so that their family has one less mouth to feed. Which causes the kids to feel depressed. In these horrible factories there are dangerous machines that cause fatal injuries. How would you feel if you were a victim of child labor? More than 215 million children are victims of child labor That's why we have to do something.
-We saw all the tragic things happening to the children all over the world so we decided to do something about.
-How would feel if you were in such a situation where you were in child labour.

“The 10 countries that Maplecroft listed as the worst countries for child labor in 2012 included Pakistan, Afghanistan, North Korea and Myanmar. The other six countries were all in Africa: Sudan, DR Congo, Somalia, Ethiopia, Burundi and Zimbabwe.”
-"Some children are forced to weave up to 18 hours a day, often never leaving the confines of the factory or loom shed".
-“At current rates, more than 100 million children will still be trapped in child labour by 2020.”
The highest proportion of child laborers is in Sub Saharan Africa, where 26 percent of children (49 million) are involved in work.
*About 218 million children aged 5-17 are involved in child labour worldwide.
