    We are making progress. Child labour has decreased by 38% in the last decade. But, 152 million children are still in child labour. It’s time to accelerate the pace of progress. It’s time to inspire legislative and practical actions to eliminate child labour for good. Everyone can make a difference; individuals can make personal choices.
