Education International Calls for an End to Child Labour
Date:6/10/2009

BRUSSELS, June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Every year at this time, members of Education International (EI) join with other trade unions and concerned citizens around the globe to mark the World Day Against Child Labour, 12 June.

Teachers' unions will be active in Albania, Bulgaria, Burundi, Georgia, Ghana, Guinea Bissau, Honduras, India, Kenya, Morocco, Zimbabwe, and elsewhere.

EI and the ILO have collaborated to produce lesson aids for classroom use and a new publication entitled Give girls a chance: End child labour. It aims to educate teacher trade unionists, civil societ
