Be the child here and be its unheard voice!!!..cause we all know what you think about this subject. Again: You have to write AS the CHILD...first person! ty :-)

--Millions of children are engaged in child labour.mostly in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean.
In Ghana most children are sold to fishermen, as small as 4 years old. They dont know how to swim but have to get into the waters, starting at 4 a.m. each morning and ending late every evening with only one meal eaten by then. Their bodies are overdeveloped for such little people.
In India, the Philippines, Thailand most children are forced into prostitution and pornography.
Children work with heavy machinery, in agriculture with pesticides and chemicals. No masks, no protection.
What about the children working with garbage, sorting out used needles with their bare little hands.
I think I need not say moreand what I have said is just a small percentage of whats going on.--
