The World Day Against Child Labour serves as a stark reminder of a persistent global challenge: millions of children are still forced to work, denied their fundamental right to education and a secure childhood. At Osadi, a company dedicated to ethical recruitment practices, we stand united with the global movement to eradicate child labour.

The devastating impact of child labour

According to the International Labour Organization (ILO), nearly 160 million children are trapped in child labour, with almost half enduring hazardous conditions that threaten their physical and mental well-being. Working long hours for meager pay, these children are denied access to education, perpetuating a cycle of poverty and hindering their potential.

The root causes of child labour

Poverty remains the primary driver of child labour. In desperate circumstances, families may rely on their children’s income for survival. Furthermore, a lack of access to education perpetuates the issue, trapping children in exploitative work with no hope for a brighter future.

The importance of ethical recruitment

Osadi is committed to fostering ethical and responsible recruitment practices. We believe in fair treatment and safe working environments for all workers. We work diligently with clients to ensure they understand the importance of these principles and actively reject any practices that exploit child labour.

The path towards a solution

Eradicating child labour requires a multifaceted approach:

  • Stronger regulations – Governments need to implement robust regulations to protect children and hold violators accountable.
  • Social safety nets – Establishing social safety nets can alleviate poverty, reducing dependence on child labour.
  • Education and awareness – Investing in education empowers children and families, breaking the cycle of child labour.
  • Responsible business practices – Businesses must prioritize ethical sourcing and ensure their supply chains are free from child labour.

Individual and collective action

By supporting companies like Osadi that champion ethical recruitment, raising awareness about child labour, and advocating for stronger regulations, we can all be part of the solution. Let’s create a world where every child has the opportunity to thrive, not to survive.
