New Delhi | Jagran Lifestyle Desk: Every year on June 12, World Day Against Child Labour 2021 is celebrated. It is observed to spread awareness about the practice of hiring minor children for labour and also encourages people to speak against this social evil practice. This day also helps in educating these kids parents that employing a child is morally and illegally wrong. This year the theme of this special day is "Act now: End Child Labour". According to reports, this is the first time in about two decades that the world has seen a hike in child labour and millions more are vulnerable due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic situation. 

This day was recognised in 2002 by the International Labour Organisation (ILO) of the United Nations. The ILO focuses on the right to education for all children across the globe, regardless of their race, economic condition or caste.

As the day is here, we have brought you some quotes and messages that you send to your family and friends to create awareness. Also, you can share them on your WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram status.
