Child Labour and how you can help

1 in 11 children are trapped in child labour in Myanmar, with half of these children subjected to hazardous conditions. Child labour : deny children education, is harmful to their health and development, and can be deadly. It prevents children, communities and the country from progressing. It is also illegal. At the International Labour Organization (ILO), we believe in a brighter future for children and for Myanmar. There is a pressing need to eliminate child labour.
