Kids United New Generation lent their voices to the ILO’s global campaign against child labour with the release of a new single “Take a Stand”, on the occasion of Universal Children’s Day, 20 November 2020.  The song, which is dedicated to the UN International Year for the Elimination of Child Labour 2021, highlights the urgent need to take action to address the problem and calls on governments and organizations around the world to do more. The lyrics focus on a message of hope, that child labour can end if we all work together. 
 
Kids United New Generation consists of five children, Dylan, Gloria, Ilyana, Nathan and Valentina.  With this new song, they are supporting the global Music Against Child Labour Initiative (MACLI), which calls on musicians to dedicate a concert or song to the struggle against child labour and to empower children through music education.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the song will be donated to the ILO’s work in supporting countries to tackle child labour.
