ILO 2016 data indicates that there are 152 million working children in the world between 5-17 years, of which 23.8 million children are in India. So 16% of the working children (or every 6th working child) in this age group is in India.

Millions of India’s children are still denied the simple joys of childhood, love and protection. And for any change on a significant scale, it will require each one of us to start thinking of children, not as objects of sympathy, but as citizens with the same rights that we consider our due.

Here's what you can do to help:

  1. Ask yourself what is in the long-term best interests of children around you – your own, your neighbour’s, the child who works at the tea stall nearby, your domestic help’s/ driver’s children.
  2. Think up of opportunities you can give all of these children to play, learn, do creative things together.
  3. Do not employ a child as domestic help, it’s illegal. 
  4. Reject goods or services that employ children – search for and encourage those suppliers and agencies that employ and pay adults enough to send their children to school.
  5. Volunteer at a non-profit organisation like CRY and UNICEF to help spread awareness. 

Let's pledge to make a positive difference!
