Child Labour: Costly at any Price (Binding)

Development Canada

This resource was written to help educators raise the awareness of their students on the issue of child labour. This means exposing child labour as a gross violation of children’s rights that will only be eliminated when there is the political will to stop it. Public awareness and outrage is an important factor in creating political will. Child labour is a complex issue. It is a violation of children’s human rights and their special rights as children. Yet one of the primary reasons children are violated and exploited is because they are children. They are young, often unaware of their rights and easily manipulated. For those who wish to maximize their profits in an exploitative manner, children are ideal labourers. Children and youth in all parts of the world, exploited or not, are entitled to knowledge of their rights and the means to defend them. This resource focuses on the underlying causes of exploitative child labour and how child labour is in fact a global problem that has its roots in the economic relationships of rich, developed countries to poorer, less developed countries. Our ultimate objective is that the activities we have designed in this curriculum unit will empower students to find solutions, voice their concerns and take action on the issue of child labour. 0000
