Transcript of Child Labor Prezi

Child Labor Around the World By definition, child labor is any work done by a person under the age of 18 that is abusive, exploitative, hazardous, or harmful. Many of the jobs done by child laborers do not earn them much pay. They can also cause emotional abuse as well as physical. POVERTY "Child Labor." Global Issues in Context Online Collection. Detroit: Gale, 2012. Global Issues In Context. Web. 14 Nov. 2012. Works Cited Why does child labor exist? CHILDREN BEING ORPHANED Poverty, along with child labor, is commonly found in developing countries. Families send out children to work to make money, even if it's only a little bit. Every penny counts, right? Many children in developing countries lose their parents to HIV/AIDS. The oldest kids, in most cases, will become the parental figure to younger siblings. Part of this means finding a job to support the family. “Diamond Industry Review.” Mining Review Africa. Issue 4, 2004. 15, Nov. 2012. By Lindsay Baker Fortunately, there are many foundations against child labor. Their goal is to help end it in all parts of the world. International
Organization United
Fund This organization watches labor standards all over the world. On their website, they state their mission: "The main aims of the ILO are to promote rights at work, encourage decent employment opportunities, enhance social protection and strengthen dialogue on work-related issues." An informational video on child labor in the Philippines. "Ending Child Labour in the Philippines." YouTube. YouTube, 01 May 2012. Web. 25 "Grieving Families Overwhelmed by War." UNICEF. N.p., n.d. Web. 25 Nov. 2012. "International Labour Organization." International Labour Organization. N.p., n.d. Web. UNICEF works for the same rights as the ILO. They support child survival and development, education and gender equality, children with HIV/AIDS, and basic child protection. It's our job to do what we can to support these foundations to stop child labor. If we continue to do our part, the world will keep improving the issue of child labor and the future of children around the world will be a little brighter. In this cartoon, a child is being wrapped up by a spider labeled "child labor" in a web of luxury, poverty, ignorance, greed, indifference and profit. To me this symbolizes why we have child labor; the greed, ignorance, profit and luxury of big businesses and a family's poverty and indifference over the issue. This cartoon is a perfect visual of what child laborers are metaphorically wrapped up in. In this cartoon, there is a man in the USA pictured. According to the cartoon, he does not work but owns a $150 pair of shoes. Next to this picture, there is a child in Indonesia who is working to make shoes, but has none herself. This shows how in the US, we are sometimes oblivious as to where our belongings come from. (In this case, his shoes are from a child laborer in Indonesia.) Being oblivious to an issue cannot solve it. Mad World covered by Adam Lambert I chose this song because it really explains how the world we live in is completely mad, or insane. (Hence the title "Mad World.") This could easily be related to child labor. Isn't completely insane how that even exists?
The lyrics that really speak to me are "Bright and early for the daily races, going nowhere, going nowhere." Millions of kids get up every day and work these long, hard hours but in truth, nothing good is coming from it. Grass Roots To put an end to child labor, it's important that each and every one of us tries to make a difference. The best way to help end child labor is to make monthly donations to organizations like UNICEF, who relies entirely on volunteers and donors. Even a dollar every month helps. With your money, UNICEF works to educate children, provide medical attention and save as many lives as they can. I pledge to donate to these organizations to help the cause. “How wonderful that no one need wait a single moment to improve the world.” -Anne Frank "Inspirational Quotes About Making A Difference."
