The WFCL is a worldwide calamitous phenomenon. The scourge is amongst the disconcerting aspects in social, educational and economic realities. The WFCL can indubitably cause unalterable physical and psychological harm or even worse, threaten children’s lives. The scourge is a social catastrophe and contended as a human rights issue. It tampers vastly on children’s core rights. High levels of poverty and the plight of HIV/AIDS, amongst others, contribute immensely in the rapid spread of the WFCL. This book asserts that both international cooperation and political will across all national governments are urgently indispensable for victory over the scourge. This shall help in realizing our goal of world of peace and security, human rights advancement and elimination of children exploitation.

MATERIAS: poverty, Worst Forms of Child Labour, a child, Trafficking of Children, ILO C. 182 and ILO C. 138, and exploitation of children (through Commercial Sexual Exploitation, Using Children to Commit Crime, Using Children in Hazardous environment)
