​INTERNATIONAL DATES: World Day Against Child Labour 

The World Day Against Child Labour is an International Labour Organisation (ILO) sanctioned holiday first lunched in 2002 aiming to raise awareness and activism to prevent child labour. It was spurred by ratifications of ILO Convention on the minimum age of employment and on the worst forms of child labour.

The World Day Against Child Labour, which is held every year on June 12, is intended to foster worldwide movement against child labour in any of its forms.
