World Vision fights for children all over the world—whether it’s helping survivors of exploitation return to normal life, or remedying circumstances that lead to exploitation in the first place.
In a lot of poor communities, child protecting structures don’t exist.
We’re working with children, their communities, governments, and even the United Nations to tackle child labour, and to put those structures in place permanently.
We’re committed to short-term and long-term solutions, providing care and attention to children who are already in need as well as preventing children from winding up in unfair circumstances in the future.
We work in over 50 countries to educate communities about the rights of children, teach people how to identify situations where a child may be exploited, and ensure that children know how to protect themselves.
We also work with children who have undergone traumatic experiences to help get them back on track.
Child labour declines because people at all levels work together, from governments to individuals. Ethical purchasing decisions by the Australian public have played an enormous role in this.
World Vision has played a big part in reducing the number of child labourers across the world …
… and we believe that with the continued help of our supporters who generously donate to our work, we can put an end to child labour once and for all.
