UNICEF launches 'Believe in ZERO Exploited Children' campaign
( UNICEF USA ) - Worldwide, 5.5 million children are victims of forced labor and child trafficking. They have been bought and sold, forced into prostitution, or made to work at grueling, dangerous jobs with little or no pay.
Their childhoods are being stolen.
UNICEF believes ZERO children should suffer this way.
UNICEF works to protect all children from violence, exploitation, and abuse-aiming to reduce factors that make children vulnerable to trafficking and creating protective environments that guard children against exploitation in the same way that good health and nutrition fortify them against disease.
The End Trafficking project is the U.S. Fund for UNICEF's initiative to raise awareness about child trafficking and mobilize communities to take meaningful action to help protect children. In partnership with concerned individuals and groups, the End Trafficking project aims to bring us all closer to a day when there are ZERO exploited children.
