Today marks the World Day against Child Labour, June 12.
Local media reporters reveal that the government will be taking measures to organize awareness programs which will make the process of reporting minor labour cases effectively.
The program will be held at the Madiwela Rahula College, and will focus on the popularization of the child labour reporting hotline number – 1929.
The International Labour Organization (ILO) launched the World Day Against Child Labour in 2002 to focus attention on the global extent of child labour and the action and efforts needed to eliminate it.
Each year on 12 June, the World Day brings together governments, employers and workers organizations, civil society, as well as millions of people from around the world to highlight the plight of child labourers and what can be done to help them.
