According to the International Labor Organization ( ILO), about 250 million children between the ages of 5 and 14 are working in developing countries, with 8.4 million involved in especially hazardous work including prostitution, soldiering, forced and bonded labor, and other illicit activities. Out of that 250 million, at least 120 million work full time. Sixty-one percent are in Asia, 32 % in Africa, and 7% in Latin America.

Many citizens may think that they know about child labour, but from new evidence, the truth is much darker than it seems. Clearly, there are several causes that lead to child labour. The most obvious cause is a shortage of money or lack of access to adequate resources.

Poor families mostly rely upon child labour in order to improve their livelihood and to survive for the next day. They have insufficient funds to provide for clothing, food, shelter and necessities, therefore they have to send their children to work. Also, as poorer families do not have access to free education, the children will still not have a chance to go to school.

According to Fors (2010), there are two types of poverty: survival poverty, and poverty from claiming chance.
