ITUC supports End Child Slavery Week 2014

In 2014, noting the failure of the international community to noticeably reduce the instances of child slavery in the world since 2005, Anti-Slavery International, Education International (EI), Global March Against Child Labour, International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), KidsRights Foundation and Thomson Reuters Foundation agreed to work towards establishing an annual week of action against child slavery.

The End Child Slavery Week 2014 will highlight the need for child slavery eradication to be made a post- 2015 Development Goal in order to marshal the global effort against this ongoing human rights abuse.

We are writing to ask you to partner with us in establishing this action.
