In this regard, the International Labor Organization (ILO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund UNICEF Has prepared a joint report, which states that the number of child laborers has reached 160 million by the beginning of 2020, an increase of 84 million children in the last four years.

The report says that the number of child laborers fell from 94 million to 94 million between 2000 and 2016, but has since begun to rise, as the Corona crisis has intensified around the world. One in 10 children was caught in child labor, which affected the region of Africa the most.

It is also said that although the child labor rate is still the same as in 2016, the population has increased, which has greatly increased the proportion. Both organizations warn that if nothing is done to provide immediate relief to the rapidly growing poor families, about 50 million more children will be forced into child labor in the next two years.

In the second year of the current national budget, families are forced to make heartbreaking choices.

According to the agencies, by the end of 2022, another 9 million children will be pushed into child labor, and half of all child labor is between the ages of 5 and 11.
