We Have made this petition because we wanted to spread awareness that Child labour is very common around the world.

Child labour is a big problem in our world today, around the world, children are forced to take an active part in paid or unpaid work. Though, it is considered to be child labour when the children are too young to work or are involved in hazardous activities that may compromise their physical, mental, social or educational development. Unfortunately, a substantial amount of child labour across the world is detrimental to children’s health and maturing. The worst of forms of child labour include use for trafficking, slavery, armed conflict, and unlawful activities.

Countries with high poverty rates are more likely to suffer from child labour due to the family needing a higher income. Asia and Africa account for a lot of child labour due to the mass amount of poverty.  It is stated that 73 million child labourers are between five and 11 years old. It is ridiculous to think that there are such young child labourers and so many. 

There are many big companies around the world that still use child, some big companies include Nestle, Apple, Hershey's, Microsoft, Marlboro, Sports direct, BAT, New look, JTI, H and M. Despite global efforts , there are still many major companies around the world that employ child labour.

Child labour needs to be stopped and by signing this petition it will mean a lot to us and the suffering children around the world. Just a little donation can go a long way.
