Still to this day child labor is still going on in the Democratic Republic. Children and young adults are still fighting for their lives as I write this paper. Trying to help their poor parents survive and to help put food in their stomachs. Child Labor is when young kids and young adults work under poor work conditions. Most young kids worked for Carpet Company’s because their hands were small enough to grab the little strings. Young girls married under the age of 18 and most girls marry during adolescence.

Generally, working children have no time, money or energy to go to school. About six million working children in Nigeria, equally split between boys and girls, do not attend school at all; while one million children are forced to drop out due to poverty or because of parents demand to contribute to the family income. Over eight million children manage, at least partly, to stay in school and work in their spare time to pay education fees. Due to high demands at work, these children often skip classes. Missing out on education makes it impossible to break the cycle of poverty and exploitation and prevents children from having a better life and a safer future. Research also show that every year, 22 thousand children die in work related accidents, child laborers suffer extremely high illness and injury rates, and children can face long hours in extreme temperatures, health risks from pesticides, inadequate food, water, and sanitation. And in 2003 the child labor laws were issued and the terrible behavior was stopped.
Myanmar forced child labor Myanmar better known as Burma is resource-rich country; however the Burmese economy is one of the least developed in the world. It is so poor it has children in the work force of the military even prostitution. Burma is one of the leading countries of child labor in the world. Forced child labor in Myanmar is everything from factories to human trafficking. The police in Myanmar force children into the military by saying that if they do not have an ID they will either have to go to jail or work in the military. Children who are forced to work in military usually are too young to even have ID’s and are usually walking home or just getting onto a bus.

A lot of people are dying because of the high sex industry in Thailand most come from Burma. A young girl fled to escape military government prostitution. Medical authorities in Burma fear that AID’s will spread throughout the country by infected prostitutes who return home. There should be something done to stop these issue; even though there has been organizations and groups to stop this it still continues to be a widespread problem, not just in Burma but all over the world.
They have formed a program to help the young adults to get back on their feet. And in October 2013 they stopped child labor across western Myanmar.
