C20 Summit 2020

Session Description:

The exploitation of children through any form of work that deprives children of their childhood and right to education is extremely harmful to their physical and mental wellbeing and deprives them of their human rights. According to the International Labour Organization (ILO) there are an estimated 152 million children in child labour, 72 million of which are engaged in hazardous work. “It’s Time to Talk! – Children´s Views on Children´s Work (T2T) is a collaborative research and advocacy project with working children supported by Kindernothilfe (KNH) and Terre des hommes Germany (TdH) in partnership with local and national NGOs and working children’s Advisory Committees. The project was driven by the need to support working children’s right to participation, to better understand the diversity of working children’s experiences, and to ensure that children’s views and best interests inform decision-making processes affecting them.
