Issue 3: 1 in 10 children are subjected to child labour worldwide

Updated: Jan 28, 2021

聯合國估計,目前全球有1.52億名兒童作為童工參與勞動,其中7200萬正從事著危險工作。因疫情嚴重打擊經濟,國際勞工組織和聯合國兒童基金會指出這至少導致童工增加零點七個百分點。童工數字的上升,更多孩子(5-17歲)的童年、潛能和尊嚴被剝奪。他們部分更從事危險工作,或會威脅到他們的身心健康。這些工作往往超過合理的工作時間,妨礙他們接受教育,亦會影響他們一生。


The United Nations estimates that there are currently 152 million children working as child labourers globally, of which 72 million are engaged in hazardous work. The economy has been severely destructed under COVID-19. The International Labour Organisation and UNICEF pointed out that this has led to an increase of at least 0.7% of child labour. With the increase in the number of child labour, more children (5-17 years old) are deprived of their childhood, individual potential, consequently, dignity. Some of them are more engaged in dangerous jobs, which may threaten their physical and mental health. These jobs often exceed reasonable working hours, hindering their access to education and leading negative influences on their development.
