Labour laws fail to protect India's children

Twenty-five years after UN outlined universal labour laws, India still home to 13 million child workers under age of 14.

    It has been 25 years since the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child outlined universal child labour laws.

    However, there are still millions of children worldwide who do not have basic rights and are compelled to work to make ends meet.

    India is home to close to 13 million child labourers under the age of 14, and laws designed to protect them are proving inadequate.
