Global March Against Child Labor

Global March Against Child Labor

The "Global march against child labor" came about in 1998 due to the overwhelming response of the need to end child labor. It was a grassroot movement that motivated many individuals and organizations to come together and fight against child labor and not an annual march.

The main goals of this movement was to:

  • "Protect and promote the rights of all children, especially the rights to receive free, meaningful education"
  • "To be free from economic exploitation and from performing any work that is likely to be damaging to a child's physical, mental, spiritual, moral or social development". The march was very successful and it achieved its purpose by allowing changes to occur with the policies of child labor with the International Labor Organization (ILO)
