How to end child labour ?
There are over 168 million child labourers worldwide. More than half of them are doing work that puts their health and safety at risk. Corinne Vargha, head of the ILO's programme to combat child labour, musician Mike Einziger, and former child labourer Esther Mohanja Sichani will be on HuffPost Live today at 15:30 (GMT) to discuss the role each of us can play to end child labour. Join the conversation by sending questions @HuffPostLive and use #WorldBrief.
