Children in hazardous labor face harm to their physical, mental, and social development. God cares about these children, and God calls us to speak on behalf of those who cannot speak for themselves (Prov. ). Although child labor may feel far removed from our own lives, we can still be part of the solution.

      Child Labor What does it look like? Why should we care? Approximately millions children under 12 work About million primary-aged kids not in school (94% from LDCS) o 75% from South Asian + Saharan African o 57% girls ( data) Forms of child labor million in forced/ bonded labor, trafficking, armed conflict, prostitution + pornography, drug production what about the rest? They are all convinced that no child should be working: every child should be in school. These child labour free zones are successful and are continuing to spread to other areas and countries. But real change requires more. This is why we call on governments, businesses and consumers worldwide to shoulder their responsibility. And work together.

        In addition, in contexts where child labour is a financial necessity, the involvement of children should be subject to additional conditions. First, families should demonstrate, and employers.   Many companies claim to adhere to strict policies about child labor. For example, Apple says that whenever it finds an underage worker in its supply chain, it sends the child home safely.
