World Day Against Child Labour was launched in 2002 and is held each year on June 12.

There are more than 168 million child labourers aged from five to 17 around the world - down a third from 246 million in 2000. Many of them will never start school or will drop out of school. They have little or no time for play or normal childhood activities.

The play labs are like nurseries, where children aged three to five attend for three hours every day. There they learn about health, mathematics, arts and science.
