“We shouldn’t wait for development to end child labour. On the contrary, ending child labour is key to sustainable development”— ILO Assistant Director-General and Regional Director for Africa, Cynthia Samuel-Olonjuwon.
With 92 million girls and boys in child labour —one in five children— Africa is the most affected region in the world. Eliminating child labour worldwide will not be achieved without a breakthrough here. This is not justifiable. Children have the right not to work. Children trapped in child labour today are the unskilled labour force of tomorrow. Ending child labour is key to sustainable development. Urgent measures to end child labour should be viewed as an investment for the future.” lhttps://punchng.com/world-day-against-child-labour-eliminating-trend-in-africa/
