All Work And No Play: World Day Against Child Labor 2012

Published 12 June 2012

The International Labor Organization launched the first World Day Against Child Labor in 2002. It is an effort to draw attention to the plight of the 250 million children between 5 and 14 who are put to work -- 120 million of them full-time and four out of five without pay. Asia has the largest number of child workers in absolute terms. The photographs in this gallery highlight kids from RFE/RL's broadcast region working in inappropriate jobs. Putting children to work not only endangers their health, in many cases, but deprives them of adequate education and, well, the chance just to be kids.
