What You Can Do To Help

Here are a few things you can do to show your support for the Initiative and to help eliminate child labour:

Spot and report:

If you spot child labour in any part of India, immediately report the case by calling 1098 (CHILDLINE). Alternatively, you can report it by clicking here. In many other countries there are similar child helplines.

Ask before you shop:

When you shop, ask the store owner whether child labour was used to make the product you are purchasing. Even if you don’t get a proper answer, it will help the store owners realize that there is a demand for child labour-free production.

Spread the word:

One way of curbing child labour is to spread awareness. So, talk to your friends, colleagues and family about child labour and encourage them to do the same.
