Jacob Zuma leader of South Africa

Children are our future because the world needs economic growth which these children provide at such a young age. Child labour is occurring every day, more than 200 million children today are child labourers. An estimated 120 million are engaged in hazardous work. Most children work on farms that produce consumer products such as cocoa, coffee, cotton, rubber and other crops. My goal is to improve the conditions for child workers, by giving them minimum wage and safer working conditions. Children are working in poor conditions for pitiful wages. Conditions need to reach an international minimum standard. Education is the best way for children to reduced poverty, It is estimated in Australia that 98% of kids who don’t work full time have a school based education.

If we change now, then children now and many years to come for decades and decades will most likely have a full time education and have a loving bond with their family. It is estimated in Australia that 98% of kids who don't work full time have an education. Africa has the most kids under 18 working full time every day for minimum pay in terrible conditions, but the world knows that Africa is one of the most undeveloped countries this is why they have so many people working at a young age. But they don't understand that some of these kids that are taken out of an education could be the one to change something in years to come if they had an education but there wasted on working full time 12+ hour's days. It is estimated at the age of 6-16 children start developing as a child and there brain starts developing a lot faster. But these children are learning nothing and will struggle later in life. 34% of these kids worldwide that a full time work do not know how to read or write.
