The World Against Child Labour
12 June 2015,09:38:51 BST
'The most recent global estimates suggests 120 million children between the ages of 5 and 14 are involved in child labour, with boys and girls in this age group almost equally affected.'
A child should be given the freedom to be a child; to play, laugh and enjoy growing up. When these devastating figures are announced it shows how much change still has to be implemented before child labour is abolished. Today is 'The World Against Child Labour' day.
At Wellicious we only manufacture in Europe and regulate our factories with consistent checks to our factories to ensure they are all using fair labour and we would never use child labour to make our products. We also donate a percentage of our profit to SOS Children's Villages in Peru where children are then provided with a life full of education, love and happiness, away from the horrors that they face in factories.
