38.7 million children living in Sub-Saharan Africa, ages 5-17, are involved in the most hazardous forms of child labor. Due to their widespread and extreme amount of poverty, high population growth, AIDS pandemic, recurring food crisis', along with political unrest, this region faces constant conflicts, preventing them from taking steps to end child labor. They need our help! By signing this petition, you can help raise awareness for the millions of children who miss out on education and unforgettable childhoods, who instead work many hours a day for little to no pay. Their lives are poorly impacted by hazardous work conditions, causing harm to their mental, physical, and social development. This is no way for children to grow up. To help make your mark against child labor, start by signing this petition! Children in Sub-Saharan Africa will be forever grateful for your support.
