UNICEF "Put It Right" Campaign

Children around the world are having their rights denied every day. UNICEF is working in 193 countries to protect these rights, making sure children's voices are heard and listened to.

Shumon's Story
Shumon, just 13, lives in a slum in Bangladesh and works seven hours a day making pots in an aluminium factory.
Unlike other children his age, he has no time to go to school.
It is unfair that Shumon has to work and miss out on an education. But his father only earns £1.10 a day, and his family relies on Shumon’s earnings to help support him and his two younger brothers.

With grateful thanks to UNICEF for their permission to reproduce this material from their official site.
