Children work because their survival and that of their families depend on it. Child labour persists even where it has been declared illegal, and is frequently surrounded by a wall of silence, indifference, and apathy. Too many children are engaged in the worst forms of child labour, including trafficking, armed conflict, slavery, sexual exploitation and hazardous work. Girls and boys may face higher risks depending on certain forms of hazardous and/or exploitative work. The effective abolition of child labour is one of the most urgent challenges of our time.
The present call for proposals both reflects and contributes to the European Commission's (EC) commitments to fight child labour.
