Violence against women in India

Nowadays child labor is one of the biggest threats to children’s rights and therefore its
eradication is an obligation for the international community. When we refer to the
term child labor, we mean precisely the work that children should not be doing because they are too young or the work that is dangerous or otherwise unsuitable for children who are old enough to work. Some of the numerous forms of child labor worldwide are: mining, agricultural labor, manufacturing, domestic service, construction, scavenging and begging on the streets. One of the main reasons why children work is that for many, working is a matter of survival.
Human Trafficking is a crime against humanity. It comprises an act of recruiting, transporting, transferring, harbouring or receiving a person through a use of force, coercion or other means, for the purpose of exploiting them. Every year, thousands of men, women and children fall into the hands of traffickers, in their own countries
and abroad. Every country in the world is affected by trafficking, whether as a country of origin, transit or destination for victims.
