2378 A child is not something owed to one, but is a gift. The "supreme gift of marriage" is a human person. A child may not be considered a piece of property, an idea to which an alleged "right to a child" would lead. In this area, only the child possesses genuine rights: the right "to be the fruit of the specific act of the conjugal love of his parents," and "the right to be respected as a person from the moment of his conception." [CDF, Donum vitae II, 8] The Catechism of The Cathilic Church SEARCH THINK OTHERS PRAY Conventions No. 182 and 138 Convention No. 138
An international agreement that all countries will set a minimum age under
which children cannot be allowed to work. For most work, children will have to
be at least 15 years old, but for dangerous work, the age should be set at 18. Convention No. 182
An international agreement that all countries will abolish the worst forms of
child labour for all children under 18. Child Labour includes both paid and unpaid work and activities that are mentally, physically, socially or morally dangerous and harmful to children. It is work that deprives them of opportunities for schooling or that requires them to assume the multiple burdens of work at home and in other work places; and work that enslaves and seperates them from their family. A sweatshop is a workplace where workers are subject to extreme exploitation, including the absence of a living wage or benefits, poor working conditions, and arbitrary discipline, such as verbal and physical abuse. Since sweatshop workers are paid less than their daily expenses, they are never able to save any money to improve their lives. They are trapped in an awful cycle of exploitation. Statistics An estimated 250 million children between the ages of five and fourteen work in developing countries.
61% in Asia
32% in Africa and
7% in Latin America.
Many of these children are forced to work. They are denied an education and a normal childhood. Some are confined and beaten. Some are denied the right to leave the workplace and go home to their families. Some are even abducted and forced to work. Child labour/Sweatshop
Popular Brands Pray for guidence, strength, and courage to always do the right thing. Know that your prayers will be answered. Find out what is right from wrong by searching the facts. In order to be more sucessful, consult people you trust, as well as experts on child labour. In this case:

workers and employers
law enforcement agencies
community members
and especially children

Young people themselves, must take a stance together, across the world, to demand the elimination of child labour! ILO.org is a great place to start. Look for ways to end Child Labour/Sweatshops, and find out the consequences.

ILO suggests:

Inform yourselves - Learn about child labour/sweatshops and its conditions, then share your knowlage with others.

Recruit others into the campaign. - Establish contact with others who can work with you during your action against child labour.

Sensitize others. - Create presentations to raise awareness

Awareness-raising. - Organize activities with others. Ex: A play, or concert

Encourage more participation. - Enform people about World Day Against Child Labour (June 12th) and organize an awareness week.

Link up with others. - Use the 12 to 12 community portal : a website that allows you to view what other people are doing around the world to end child labour, as well as sharing with them your own efforts.

All efforts against child labour will have a positive impact.
Decisions made to help stop child labour/sweatshops will help spread the awareness to the public. No matter how small, one person at a time can help give a child a childhood.
