Research has shown that approximately 1.2 million children each year are trafficked worldwide to live in such harsh conditions (UNICEF, UK Child Trafficking Information Sheet, January 2003). These children often feel neglected and sad because they have been abandoned and sent off to live in difficult circumstances.
Megan Kosten Barovero,pd.3 History 5.0 13 April 2014 Child Labor in Bangladesh Child labor has continued to be an ongoing problem in Bangladesh. There are many reasons for child labor, however, the top three reasons are because childrens’ families need money to buy food, they need money to buy clothing, and most of their parents lived in horrible shantytowns.

It is no secret that Africa is comprised of some of the most deprived countries in the world. Each day millions of Africans are left starving and weakened from illness and poor health conditions. Surprisingly, this is not due to simple misfortune, but instead is the direct result of the lack of education in Africa.
