There are children that are lacking the required education because people are putting them under child labour. Child labor is when children are moved to an industry or business that puts them in a position where they have to work illegally under the power of their captor. Working 12-16 hours a day leads to bad consequences like not Immunization , starvation , and disease. Immunization causes about 2-3 million deaths per year because they are missing out on basic vaccines that could save a life or even a village. Starvation is a major issue in the world of poverty if they don’t get enough food they could die, also Eleven percent of the global population suffers from hunger (one in nine). One in three people is malnourished.

Children should be free of any work and not put under any amount of pressure. These children do not deserve to be working two times a regular adult and some even work from 6 a.m – 7 p.
m for under 20 cents a day. They are missing the ability to read and write, imagine an adult at an grade 1 level. Just think how this will affect the future generation. ” All the problems in the world – Child labour, corruption – are symptoms of spiritual disease: lack of compassion.” – Bill Vaughan
