At this moment in the world millions of children are forced to work at as early an age of 5. This number amounts to 250 million children forced to work to try to survive and support their families. Sometimes they are forced to carry out very heavy work and even dangerous jobs. Children become workers, forced to work in fields infested with pesticides that can cause damage to their health.
Girls as young as 14 on the other hand, are frequently subjected to sexual violence when they should be at school, playing, having time to rest but instead are forced to work in the fields, in landfills, on the road, wherever there are opportunities to earn something to help themselves and their families survive.
