Put and END to child labor in agriculture and textiles!

Worldwide 218 million children between 5 and 17 years are in work that deprives them of their childhood, their potential and their dignity, they conduct work that is harmful to physical and mental development with close to no pay. In absolute terms, almost half of child labor (72.1 million) is to be found in Africa; 62.1 million in the Asia and the Pacific; 10.7 million in the Americas; 1.2 million in the Arab States and 5.5 million in Europe and Central Asia.
While you complain about your homework you got at school, or having to make dinner, millions of children are suffering at the hands of labor, and all you're doing is indirectly supporting it by buying from brands and companies which are associated with child labor. By signing this petition we will show the government how many people really care about this issue, and reduce these numbers shown of children in labor around the world.
