Child Labour- Global Problem

According to Unicef about 211 million children aged from five to 14 are at work around the world. The ILO estimates that between five and six million children are forced labourers (40-50% of the total). Some of them are born into bondage; some are sold by their parents or abducted working in agriculture, industry, domestic work.
There exists a dire need to join hands to abolish child slavery.
