Stop Child Labor in Vietnam

Petition published by Tamir Lilani on Mar 06, 2010
25 Signatures 
Target: UNICEF
Region: Vietnam

Petition Background (Preamble):

Many children worldwide are forced to work in harsh conditions to help support their families. This is the case for 1 in every 7 children worldwide.

If they grow up without an education they will be unsuccessful and their children will also have to go into labor. This creates an endless cycle unless something is done.

Petition:

We, the undersigned, ask that you all understand this problem of using children in the workforce.

Children should not be treated as adults and they should be able to live up their childhood, and not have to worry about making money for their family.

We are trying to raise awareness about this issue, and i hope you feel as strongly about it as we do.
