Child labour The problem of the child labour is global. Thousands black and white photos could appear in front of our eyes, telling us many histories of exploitation: the sewers of footballs in Pakistan, the young interweavers of Indian rugs, the beet sugar pickers in Brasil...
This problem, sadly unites developed Countries and poor Countries; the facets that characterize it are different, but an only cruel common feature exists: the exploitation, the indigence, the poverty, the deprived of infancy.
Children employed in armed conflicts and children without education Directly or indirectly involved in the armed conflicts, there are millions of children victims of war. More often children always become target of armed conflicts, almost halves the people killed in war during the '90s are children. Many other millions of children have seriously been wounded or they have been made disabled in permanent way; they have suffered sexual abuse, psychological traumas, hunger and illnesses. Around 20 million children have been torn from their houses and community of origin because of war.
We can calculate that in the world there are at least 300.000 boys under 18 years currently engaged in armed conflicts. Most soldier children are between the age of 15 and 18 years. Many others, are recruited before they re 10 years old.
The anti-personel mines are responsible of many victims a year. Children particularly are in danger to be wounded or killed by mines, because their reduced dimensions, unusual shapes and colors make them look like toys.
The consequences of the denied access to education of the smaller ones that live in the zones of war are dramatic. In these areas the educational system is the first one to pay: if not destroyed by bombings, schools are often seized to be used as military bases or to accomodate evacuees. Between January and March 2005, in Nepal many students were abducted from their rural schools and forced to join up the Army. Besides this, teachers themselves are victims of conflicts too.
