DMS joins #Redcard campaign against Child Labour
As you read this, in this exact moment, there are millions of children around the world who are working to help their family and in the process get exploited or harmed one way or another. UNICEF numbers show that approximately 150 million children of ages 5 to 14 are engaged in child labour.
Not only does child labour reinforce cycles of poverty in an intergenerational level but it also undermines national economies. Most importantly, it deprives children of their childhood, the potential they carry and their dignity taking a direct impact on their physical and mental development.
Join the cause using the hashtag #Redcard and speak out on child labour! Be the voice of child focused advocacy campaign such as this one and help us raise awareness of the issues involved in child labour. Protect our future generations from being victims of this unfortunate reality.
