CHILD LABOUR

Child Labour and Salesian Action (links)
Nearly 160 million kids aged between five and fourteen are trapped in child labour  
world wide. 
 They are everywhere but invisible, toiling as domestic servants in homes, labouring behind the walls of workshops, hidden from view in plantations, handling chemicals and pesticides in agriculture, working in mines, or operating dangerous machinery.
  

India has the most challenging environment for business 
 
relating to child labour, as it is ranked 1/196 countries in Maplecroft's Child 
 
Labour Index. The country has the highest number of child workers in the 
 
world, says the report released on August 16.
