Childhood Lost!

The World Anti Child Labour Day was introduced in 2002 by the International Labour Organisation (ILO), aimed at raising awareness and activism to prevent child labour. However, given the current situation, the theme for World Anti Child Labour Day 2020 is ‘COVID-19 – protect children from child labour now, more than ever.’

There has been a huge shock to the labour market due to the ongoing pandemic. Unfortunately, children are often the first to suffer. ILO’s current goal is to save millions of children falling prey to child labour due to the virus. The virus has caused school closures across the globe and as a result, children are now more likely to be forced into labour.

Child labourers are more prevalent in the informal economy. Therefore, the pandemic, coupled with informal employment, can pull children out of schools and push them into labour.
