CHILD REFUSE - Landfill In Nicaragua
Interview by Paolo Marchetti
Throughout the world 215 million working children age 5 to 17 years old. Of these, 115 millions are involved in the worst forms of child labor.
Many suffer harassment, physical violence, psychological and sexual abuse inflicted by "employers". The problem is global. For 2011, the ILO (International Labor Organization) focused on the most dangerous forms of work, those that would seriously damage the health, safety or the psyche of children. The international community is committed to eliminating this type of threat to child health and sagety by 2016 (Global Conference on Child Labour Hague - 2010) by strengthening education and health service, by enhancing protections for at-risk children and using strategies to promote vocational training of young people.
