2009 World Day Against Child Labour: UNGEI statement

— theme: Child Labour and Youth Employment

This year’s World Day Against Child Labour marks the 10th anniversary of the adoption of ILO Convention No. 182 calling on nations to take action to prevent and combat the worst forms of child labour. This day, 12 June, serves to re-affirm our commitment to working towards a world free from child labour. The thematic focus for this year is the girl child – an important acknowledgement that around the world, a large number of girls who should be in school are working instead, often excluded from formal education and often in some of the worst forms of child labour.
