The international child health project to the international congress against child forced labour and child Exploitation taking place from August 13th - 17th 2012 in California the United States and in Dakar-Senegal, from August 20th - 25th 2012. We are inviting people from various countries around the world.

Today, according to the ILO's most recent estimates, over 132 million boys and girls, aged 5-14 years old, work in agriculture around the world. They are part of an estimated 246 million child labourers globally. Few countries and sectors totally escape this terrible blight in the 21st century.

Child labour can be defined as work that deprives children of their childhood, their potential and their dignity, and that is harmful to physical and mental development” We all have to come together and find solution to combat child forced labour and Exploitation.
