Child Labor Across Age Groups

In 2022, child laborers aged 15 to 17 still make up the majority of working children engaged in child labor at 61.6%. This figure was 64.7% in 2021 and even higher at 73.3% in 2020.

Let’s take a stand against child labor. Together, let’s create a brighter future for these young lives. Para sa #BatangMalaya!
