Sound familiar?

Some 215 million children are laboring for survival.

“The grim reality for many children is they do not have the opportunity to play, to learn,” he said. “They are trapped in child labor. We want to focus attention on this issue.”

Of the 215 million child laborers, the ILO estimates more than half, or 115 million, are trapped in the worst forms of child labor. This includes all forms of slavery, such as debt bondage, using children in armed conflict, or in the sex industry.

And still we let them get away with it.
