Human Rights Declaration; Art.26

Article 26 of the Human Rights declares that “everyone has the right to education”. This article is clearly violated in many underdeveloped countries. A great number of children are obliged to work many hours and in terrible conditions to support their families. These children suffer of hunger, skin cancer as a consequence of more than 12 hours working under the sun and many other illnesses.

In my opinion, the Government should seriously keep watch over this child abuse and make sure that they receive a proper education. Education should be free and accessible in every corner of the world and it should be promoted by building schools, contracting for teachers and organising activities to motivate the students. Due to the fact that children are the future, arranging exchanges with students of other countries and cultures as to exalt the relationships between nationalities and races would also be a good idea.

According to the United Nations, more than 250 million children under the age of 14 are forced to work all around the world, especially in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

A future without children work is, at last, at our reach. It is an aspect of universal poverty: each day thousands of children die while they are working.
