UNICEF, ILO summons for child social protection

(MENAFN) Internationally, above 160 million kid are in child labor, as reported announced by the International Labor Organization (ILO) as well as the UN children's agency UNICEF.

In the documented file, the ILO as well as UNICEF cautioned about that without relief plans, the number of kids in child labor could increase by 8.9 million by the end of 2022 because of increased poverty and raised vulnerability. Even though, both are the giants for children’s rights.

Children have to have social guarding, which decreases both aforementioned, family deprivation and helplessness, lessening critical drivers of child employment, as reported. Meanwhile, both organizations summoned for ending the social guarding coverage gap for the 1.5 billion kid internationally that are not provided by family or child money incomes.

Guy Ryder, the ILO's general manager, stated, "There are many reasons to invest in universal social protection but eliminating child labor has to be one of the most compelling, given its pernicious impact on children's rights and wellbeing.”
